Research into the structural behaviour and construction techniques of steel-concrete-steel was divided into three phases. Phase 1 consisted of failure tests on SCS beams, columns, radiuses, T-junction and complete cross-section specimens. Phase 2 was the development and write up of a technical report concerning application guidelines for immersed tube tunnels. Phase 3 saw fatigue tests carried out on nine SCS beams, leading to the development of interim fatigue design recommendations. Further research is being carried out.
