In the design of engineering structures both structural steel and reinforced concrete are commonly used independently, but lately a combination of both these types of construction has been developed, the so-called 'Composite Construction.' In this method the shrinkage and creep of the concrete give rise to difficulties which have to be taken fully into account in design.
