I know you guys can help me on this. I'm having trouble getting something clear in my head on a beam to girder connection analysis. Hypothetical: Let's say there is a floor slab supported by steel floor beams. The floor beams sit atop steel girders, which sit atop the columns (typical situation). For load transfer analysis, I understand this situation. But, what if the beams are welded into the web of the girders, such that they do not sit atop the girders, but instead, the top of the flanges of both members are at a common elevation. Get the scenario? If so, is this connection looked at as pinned or fixed? Also, how does the load from the beam transfer to the girder? I would definitely appreciate the help (young engineer).
