Design of Steel-Concrete Composite Structures using Eurocode 4

Event code: 77091


SS EN 1994 (Eurocode 4) is the new standard for design of composite structures. It covers many forms of composite structural design and provides the most comprehensive and up-to-date set of design guidance currently available. This course aims to provide civil and structural engineers an introduction to the Eurocode provisions for the design of steel-concrete composite building structures. The course will cover primary design issues and design procedures for composite beams and slabs as used in modern building construction. It also covers shear connections, column design and the interaction between Eurocode 4 and other Eurocode parts. Cross references will be made to the other Eurocode parts which are needed to develop design solutions, for example, SS EN 1991 (Eurocode 1 - Actions on structures), SS EN 1992 (Eurocode 2 - Design of concrete structures) and SS EN 1993 (Eurocode 3 - Design of steel structures) and their respective Singapore National Annexes. Practical examples with direct reference to the code clauses will be used to illustrate the application of the code requirements.


After attending the course, participants will be able to:

1. Apply design procedures and standards in accordance with Eurocodes and Singapore National Annexes in the design of steel-concrete composite structures;

2. Design steel-concrete composite structures and its components to Eurocode 4;

3. Navigate effectively around Eurocode 4 and other Eurocode parts necessary for the design of building structures;

4. Develop economical design using the advantages of steel and concrete materials to achieve long-span and column free construction.
