Abstract

This paper will look at the important Advances, Behaviour, Construction and Design practices in the area of steel and composite structures focusing on Australian Experiences. A historical expose of the use of steel and composite structures will be provided, together with the Advances in material behaviour, particularly steel strengths. Significant research which has looked into the fundamental Behaviour of steel and composite structures over the last half century will also be provided. As is often the case, Construction often leads the way in innovation and this will also be highlighted in the paper. Finally, the paper will focus on Design and the significant developments in Australia to codify recent advances in steel and composite structures for buildings and bridges focusing on the soon to be released AS/NZS 2327 and AS/NZS 5100: Part 6 on steel and composite structures for buildings and bridges respectively.
