This book provides an introduction to the theory and design of composite structures of steel and concrete. Material applicable to both buildings and bridges is included, with more detailed information relating to structures for buildings.

Throughout, the design methods are illustrated by calculations in accordance with the Eurocode for composite structures, EN 1994, Part 1-1, 'General rules and rules for buildings' and Part 1-2, 'Structural fire design', and their cross-references to ENs 1990 to 1993.

The methods are stated and explained, so that no reference to Eurocodes is needed. The use of Eurocodes has been required in the UK since 2010 for building and bridge structures that are publicly funded.

Their first major revision began in 2015, with the new versions due in the early 2020s. Both authors are involved in the work on Eurocode 4. They explain the expected additions and changes, and their effect in the worked examples for a multi-storey framed structure for a building, including resistance to fire.

The book will be of interest to undergraduate and postgraduate students, their lecturers and supervisors, and to practising engineers seeking familiarity with composite structures, the Eurocodes, and their ongoing revision.

Composite and Steel Construction compendium. Part 11: Beams with web openings

The provision of beams with web openings has become a common method of incorporating services within the structural depth of a floor. Although specialist software is available to design such beams, guidance regarding sizing, spacing and best practice is useful for engineers performing scheme design.

<h4>Composite and Steel Construction compendium. Part 12: Portal frames</h4>

Composite and Steel Construction compendium. Part 12: Portal frames

Portal frame buildings despite being very common, are a structural form with features that present particular challenges; this has led to specialisation by some designers and manufacturers. The purpose of this final article in the series is to identify and discuss these features, which are not usually found in buildings of more than one storey.

Composite and Steel Construction compendium. Part 5: Construction of composite floors

This final article in the composite part of this construction compendium looks at three aspects of construction; the provision of lateral restraint to the beams, whether the steelwork is propped and how the concrete is levelled.
