Steel–Concrete Composite (SCC) Systems

Composite construction includes a wide range of structural systems, e.g., framed structures employing all steel–concrete composite (SCC) members and components (e.g., composite beam-to-columns and connections) and sub-assemblages of steel and/or reinforced concrete (RC) elements. Such components and elements are employed to optimize the resistance and deformation capacity (Uchida and Tohki 1997). SCC structures have been used extensively in recent years because of benefits in combining the two construction materials. SCC structures are also known for their excellent earthquake performance owing to their high strength, high ductility, and large energy absorption. Their good structural damping properties...
