dc.description.abstractThe design of multi-storey buildings in the UK, in the past, considered steel and concrete structures in isolation. Today, designers utilize the combined properties of steel and concrete in the form of composite or hybrid structures as a more attractive efficient alternative. Designers of steel structures acknowledge that the presence of concrete slabs may be designed compositely with steel beams in order to increase both flexural strength and stiffness at virtually no extra cost, except for the headed shear studs. The use of composite construction with precast hollowcore slabs has become one of the most popular construction methods in the UK. Currently, design of composite construction is covered by BS5950, Part 3, but will soon be replaced by the new European Standard, Eurocode 4. However, design of composite construction with precast hollowcore slabs is currently outside the provisions of this new code. In this paper, an overview of the Eurocode 4 structure and its contents are first presented and some of the particular issues that affect this new form of construction will be given. Design guidance using the Eurocode methodology will also be presented.
