I'm currently working on an existing composite concrete and metal deck floor structure which is supported by steel beams. My client wants to increase the loading capacity of this floor. In order to increase the loading capacity, our analysis program indicates that we will need to add additional steel studs to the beams. Can additional steel studs be add to existing steel beams, how is this done, and at what locations?
