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?
