This presentation looks at trending technologies and techniques in the design and construction of steel and composite infrastructure. This presentation focuses on the broad categories of bridge and building infrastructure and the past, present and future practices. In particular the issue of the reduction, reuse, recycling and rethinking (4 R├ó┬?┬?s) as it applies to the use of steel in steel and composite infrastructure will be addressed. Particular focus of this presentation is looking at connections in steel and composite infrastructure in addressing the 4 R├ó┬?┬?s. In addition the issue of advanced materials, particularly for steel and concrete for beams, columns, joints, slabs and systems will be a focal point for the paper. The presentation concludes with some salient examples of these advances as they have been addressed in American, Australian and European Codes of Practice.
