Composite structural systems are those in which two or more materials act together, offering a unique solution to resolve the forces acting on the building.
constructsteel and the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) have embarked on a two-year research project that will explore the future potential of steel-timber composite structures in tall buildings. The overriding objective of this project is to capture the current state‐of‐the‐art and full potential of steel‐timber composite structures in high‐rise buildings, globally, as a means of clarifying the full benefits of steel‐timber composite construction for the tall building industry.
