Steel-concrete composite construction allows various structural solutions that optimize the performances of the two-component materials through a well-assessed design that takes into account all the particularities of steel and RC constructions as well as interaction problems.
The use of composite construction is widely spread all around the world, and its use for the construction of medium-sized bridges is a very frequent technical choice. In this historical period, the concrete industry must take this into account.
The motivation of the fib TG2.6 is to identify the meaningful characteristics of composite steel- concrete structures with respect to typical aspects of RC structures in order to provide technical knowledge and design provisions.
The activity of the group is focused on the analyses of the structural behaviour of RC parts constituting steel-concrete composite members and the modeling of their interaction with the steel parts.
