Part of: Composite and Mixed Construction


Mixed steel-concrete systems have emerged into a well established new system that can be used as readily as either steel or concrete systems for high-rise buildings. Mixed systems offer an opportunity for devising ingenious combinations that better serve the structure and its economy while providing a new freedom for architectural massing and expression. Several recent illustrative applications are described in this paper together with relevant design issues. The role played by steel and concrete in any system combination is also discussed.
