One-day Workshop on Design of Composite Steel and Concrete Structures Using Eurocode 4

01 April 2016,  1 day

Venue: Room Z504, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hunghom, Kow loon

Organizer: The Hong Kong Institute of Steel Construction & The Hong Kong Polytechnic University

SS EN 1994 (Eurocode 4) is the new standard for design of steel -concrete 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 fast track and high productivity construction. It also covers shear connections, long span floor systems, composite columns, high-rise composite buildings. Cross references will be made to the other Eurocode parts which are needed to develop design solutions. Practical examples with directreference to the code clauses will be used to illustrate the application of the code requirements.
