A discussion of the changes in concepts and philosophies which have affected the development of steel and concrete composite beams over the past 15 years. . .The key points are highlighted.

Experiences based on storm damage during the past few years indicate that buildings can be erected without major increase in cost to withstand the ravages of storms, provided resistance to forces encountered during storms has been given careful consideration by the designer. . .Using a typical residental building as an example, design considerations and construction details are advanced which can help make a building storm-resistant in areas with either moderate or severe storm exposure.

The major types of connection for prescast-prestressed concrete are described briefly.
Reliability, econonmy, and simplicity should be the criteria for selecting an achorage or connection detail. Each anchorage must be of adequate strength to perform its assigned task, must be the proper type for the application, and must be able to provide satisifactory service throughtout the life of the structure. . . Examples are presented to point up the difficulties, accomplishments and goals for proper anchoring of and to concrete.
