To describe the behavior of steel and composite structures, basic knowledge of stability, ductility and deformation capacity is required. Metal structures are more subject to stability influences than structures made from all other traditional building materials. The use of modern high-performance materials also leads to slender structures, which are subject to an increased risk of stability. Based on the results of component tests and the results of extensive numerical simulations of component and structural behavior, we develop models to describe the structural and deformation behavior.
