Steel-Concrete-Steel (SC) construction comprises two steel plates with concrete infill. Welded studs and tie bars ensure shear transfer between steel and concrete. SC has structural advantages and leads to faster construction compared to classical reinforced concrete solutions , and advantage especially important in the industrial sectors. In this study we developed a general purpose modelling tool for evaluating the bending and shear strength of SC members. We show that most numerical modelling techniques found in the technical literature cannot predict the general behaviour of SC members. This work aimed to develop a single finite element model, which is able to predict all failure modes relevant to SC members.
