the modular ratio is the relationship between the elastic moduli of both materials and has a nondimensional value on the order of 14.5 for steel over wood. in other words, steel is about 14.5 times stronger than wood. depending upon the specific application, you may need to fabricate an all-steel composite section to achieve the desired properties.

elements and examples of beam design: flitch beams. flitch beams are specially constructed beams that join a steel plate with adjacent wood panels to form one composite structural beam. these flitch beams are strong, yet less expensive and lighter than solid steel beams. the construction of a flitch beam results in a reduction of the overall size of the beam, and the wooden exterior also allows the builder to nail the beam to other existing wooden structures in the home. elements and
the requirements of bs en 1993 steel structures and bs en 1994 composite steel and concrete structures are briefly introduced with respect to building design. information is also given for the relevant sections of bs en 1992 eurocode 2 , which covers the design of concrete elements in composite structures.

ce 405: design of steel structures prof. dr. a. varma 2.2 flexural deflection of beams serviceability steel beams are designed for the factored design loads. the moment capacity, i.e., the factored moment strength bmn should be greater than the moment mu caused by the factored loads.
steel against lateral buckling. with a flitch plate beam, the structural load is shared between the steel plate and the wood side pieces proportionally to their relative stiffness. in order to structurally ana-lyze a flitch plate beam, transformed section properties are used that treat the composite section as an equivalent wood member.
example problem 10.1. since w is 1.67 for flexure in composite beams scm i3.2a , the required nominal capacity is: req'd m n = m a w = 100 ft-k 1.67 = 167 ft-k finally the ratio m a / m n / w can be computed: m a / m n / w = 167 ft-k / 336 ft-k = 0.497 since the ratio is less than 1.0,
a generic formula for the minimum width of a beam is given by: b min = 2×cover 2d bs xn i=1 d bf,i n1 c s,min 7 where d bs is the diameter of the stirrup, d bf,i is the diameter of the ith exural reinforcing bar, and c s,min is the minimum clear spacing between bars. we will use 1.5 inches clear cover and assume a 3 stirrup. the minimum beam width, b

wood/steel composite beam. we bolted 4' x 1/4 ' steel flat bars between two joists and it totally solve the problem. my suggestion is to totally ignore the strength contribution of timber and simply calculate based on strength and elasticity of steel you will be surprised at outcome..timber is very flexible and steel very rigid. cheers david whitlock.
