(OS9) Title : Advances in steel and composite structures
Richard Liew (Natl. Univ. of Singapore, Singapore)
This special session focuses on the research, development, recent progress and innovations in the analysis, design and construction of steel concrete composite & hybrid structures. The use of lightweight cementitious materials, high performance steel and high strength concrete and their response behaviour at high temperature will be discussed. Relevant topics include in the presentations are high strength bolts, high strength steel structures, design of 3D modular steel-concrete structures, fire resistant design, concrete filled tubes, lightweight slim floor system, composite shear wall etc.
