In this paper, it will be assumed that composite construction is achieved when the complete cross-section of a concrete component acts with any steel section to form an integral unit. The term can be applied both to structures comprising steel beams and to prestressed concrete construction, but it does not apply to conventional reinforced concrete, where large zones of the concrete are considered as having cracked and become ineffective under working conditions.
