كود:Floor Framing (formerly known as Parametric Bay Studies) can help engineers determine optimal composite steel and concrete slab on metal deck floor framing. This tool can design a typical interior bay and optimize the results for either the overall weight or the relative cost of the framing system. Each evaluation is based on strength, deflection limits, and vibration for walking excitation based on AISC Design Guide 11, Floor Vibrations Due to Human Activity . Each run takes less than a minute, so criteria such as slab density and thickness, column spacing, and loading can quickly be changed to optimize the floor framing.
