This paper presents a review of the computational analysis of composite steel/concrete beams, with particular attention on the modelling of composite beams with headed stud connectors that have deep trapezoidal slabs cast onto profiled steel sheeting, and to an innovative deconstructable composite beam. It is concluded that whilst robust algorithms are available, there is still considerable scope for improvement of these models as an alternative to undertaking expensive testing programs in order to formulate practical design guidance and procedures.
