The effect of varying the thermal regime in a highly restrained composite beam in a steel frame structure is studied using a finite element model. The variation of through depth thermal gradients in both directions of the orthotropic slab was studied in the first part of this paper. In this part the effect of varying the mean temperature increase in the slab is investigated using the same model of the British Steel restrained beam test.
