Hello,1. Anyone knows how to apply the same composite deck properties to all deck without doing it one by one? I'm using STAAD.Pro 2006?
2. In STAAD.Pro, do I need to create 1 composite deck between each secondary beam or just one deck between the main beam?
*Attached below are screenshot of the project related to the questions.
You do NOT need to define composite decks one by one. If the deck properties and the direction are same, you can define a single deck covering all the members. Just identify the boundary of the deck by clicking the corner nodes and depending on the direction of the deck, the software would figure out the effective slab width for the composite beams.

how the staad composite deck consider the shear connection from deck to beam?
can we consider partial shear connection? such as 40%.
