I agree with Mr. Vipul. If ductile detailing is to be carried out for earthquake what code do we refer. In concrete structures the steel reinforcement is increased by certain proportion to achieve ductility. What measures are to be taken for steel structures esp. the connections.
What are the measures to be taken in case of composite construction where there may be different cases of only columns are composite and the beams are not or vice versa.
Coming to Design of composite structures it is not mentioned at all except in the appendix that to for vibration of floors. But in India composite steel deck floor are still not used because the codes are not available. Niether the clients nor the manufacturers want to spend on experimental design. In India the steel structure can be economical if it is used as a composite structure. One of the INSDAG's publications for design of composite floors (deck span) clearly says that the design example is based on BS 5950 as no mention of it is found in IS :800 now that the code is being revised it is necessary to incorporate composite section designs.
