Steel-concrete composites are one of the most rapidly adopted structures, especially in cases
where large clear spans are required with high strength to weight ratio. The formation of steelconcrete composites using individual steel and concrete elements needs an understanding of the
independent behaviour of both components along with an insight on the possible interaction
between the two. One of the most critical parameters of the design of composite sections is the
design of the connection to unite steel and concrete. The objective of this webinar is to introduce
the audience to the concept of Steel Concrete Composites and to enable them to carry out the
design of composite beams.
