E – 1841 Basic Design of Steel-Concrete Composite Building Structures

Intended Audience: Civil & Structure Engineers.



    The use of composite members, connections, and systems is widespread.  Nowadays, almost all steel structures of buildings and steel girder bridges have composite floor decks supported on composite beams and girders. The columns in many buildings, especially in medium-, and high-rises, are also composite.  The concrete-filled tube composite piles are very popular these days because of their cost-efficiency and the ease and speed of construction.   Yet, the behavior and design of steel-concrete composite structures and their members and connections are not covered extensively, if at all in structural engineering curriculum  This Course presents information on the basic design of steel-concrete composite structures.  The Course covers the basics of the following topics:

    1. Introduction to Composite Structures and Design
    2. Material Properties of Steel and Concrete in Composite Structures
    3. Shear Connectors in Composite Structures
    4. Composite Structural Framing Systems
    5. Composite Tension Members
    6. Composite Compression Members
    7. Composite Beams
    8. Composite Members under Combined Loads
    9. Composite Trusses
    10. Composite Shear Walls
    11. Types of Composite Connections
    12. Composite Shear Connections
    13. Composite Moment Connections

    Learning Objectives

    Upon completion of the Course, the student should understand:

    • The basic design of composite building structures.
    • Material properties of steel and concrete used in composite structures.
    • The design of “shear connectors,” which are the essential component of composite structures.
    • Common types of composite structural systems used in buildings
    • Design of composite members subjected to axial tension or compression such as bracing members, columns, and piles.
    • Design of composite flexural members such as beams and trusses
    • Design of composite members subjected to combinations of axial load, bending, shear, and torsion.
    • Design of composite shear walls
    • Basic types of composite connections.
    • Design of most common composite shear connections
    • Design of most common composite moment connections.
