Timber nailer on steel beam

Timber nailer on steel beam

Timber nailer on steel beam

I have steel members that will be supporting timber decking. In order to attach the decking to the steel members, I need to design the connection between a timber nailer and the top flange of our W8 shape. I have done a little research and have found that a normal detail for this would be to shop weld studs to the top of the steel and drill the nailer in the field. How exactly can this be designed? The resources I have found have simply said "size and spacing determined by the engineer." Can anyone point me in the right direction?

RE: Timber nailer on steel beam

Double posting frowned upobn. Ask for one to be removed..

RE: Timber nailer on steel beam

Definitely remove this one- totally wrong place.

RE: Timber nailer on steel beam

Sorry guys, I realized I posted this to the wrong forum, then I posted it to the correct one, that is the only reason it was posted twice.

Would somebody mind telling me how to delete the thread? I don't see any option besides Red Flagging the post.

RE: Timber nailer on steel beam

Red Flagging is the way to go. They don't mark you down as bad if you mark it yourself.
