  • Information


Well-designed hybrid structures can combine the different performance strengths materials.

This guide focuses on design approaches for concrete structures reinforced in an unconventional way by steel profiles.

It explains force transfer mechanisms of steel profiles and oncrete interfaces, and an analysis of the characteristics of hybrid structures, including slendercomponents.

Several types of hybrid designs are addressed: walls and columns with several embedded steel profiles, connections strengthened by steel profiles between steel and composite or reinforced concrete components, including the specific case of shear keys connecting deep beams or flat slabs to columns.

The transition zones in partly reinforced concrete and partly composite columns are also covered. Design of Hybrid Structures draws on the European SMARTCOCO research project of experimentation and numerical modelling, giving practical guidance for designers and introducing the subject for researchers and graduate students.
