Lack of sufficient data has limited a wider application of structures using mixed steel-concrete construction in seismically active regions. This paper summarizes some recent studies at University of Cincinnati which were conducted as an effort to provide additional data on seismic performance of two structural systems employing composite construction. These systems are reinforced concrete walls that are coupled by steel beams, and beam-column knee connections in which conventional reinforced concrete connection details are replaced by a composite alternative. This paper describes the studies into each system.
