Composite Collector Beam Design with Seismic Loads Based on AISC 360-05 / CBC 07 / IBC 06

Composite Collector Beam are¬†constructed from more than one material to increase stiffness or strength (or to reduce cost). Common composite-type beams include I-beams where the web is plywood and the flanges are solid wood members (sometimes referred to as “engineered I-beams”).
