CoSFB (Composite slim floor beams), a new development by ArcelorMittal, combines the advantages of composite design with traditional slim floor construction and is the perfect answer to the demands of long spans in modern archi tecture. CoSFB is an economic solution for sustainable construction.
This software is intended to facilitate the design and the calculations of composite Slim Floor Beams according to the principles of Eurocodes (EN) [1 to 4] and fully complies with German Technical Approval "Zulassung-CoSFB-Betondubel z-26.4-59" for the case of shear connection made with concrete dowels. Thanks to its graphic and user-friendly interface, its use does not require a long training time. However, the user must have an appropriate knowledge in the fields of steel structures and of composite concrete-steel structures. The user should also check whether the project dealt with falls within the field of application of this software and, if needed, should complete the calculations carried out by the software with the verifications that might be required.
The field of application is limited to statically determinate beams on two simple supports. The software covers integrated beams fabricated from a hot-rolled profile (IFB-A. IFB-B, SFB).
* CoSFB download link provides freeware version of the software for Windows, MacOS, Android and IOS.
