I am performaing analysis and design of a composite slab. I am approaching this with user defined beams having same properties except a higher Iy and a flexible diaphragm slab.
1- Is my approach correct or is there a better and more reliable method.
2- Shouldn't there be other parameters than Iy that need to be increased or changed. See attached image.
