Abstract


This paper addresses the applications, behaviour and construction of high performance steels in steel-concrete composite structures.   For the purposes of this paper, high performance steels will include high strength, stainless and weathering steels. Akin to many innovations in the construction industry, high performance steels have generally been adopted for the use in iconic projects well before design procedures have been developed in standards.  This paper will provide a summary of many of the applications particularly as they pertain to iconic projects in Australasia and internationally.   Recent research in these areas will also be summarised and important design parameters as they deviate from traditional mild structural steel will be highlighted.   Australasian advances in the standardisation of both bridges and buildings incorporating high performance steels will also be summarised, with particular reference to the Australasian Design Codes in Bridge Structures, ASNZS 5100 Part 6; and Building Structures ASNZS 2327 which have both been published in 2017.   The paper will conclude with suggestions for further research and will identify areas of significant gaps in Australasian and international standards which will also guide future research in this area.
