"At present in building construction the use of the composite beams is not very common. The use of the concrete beams is seen in almost all construction. By using composite beams in building construction more durability and savings in cost could be achieved. This paper shows an approximate design procedure which could be followed without running a number of trials with different sections to arrive at the required one. The ratio of top flange steel to the bottom flange steel can be determined if one knows the loads, span and the depth of the beam required"--Abstract, page i.
