  • Ocean engineering and construction are promising foundations for the implementation of China’s maritime power strategy. Compared to land engineering, ocean engineering requires more complex and demanding construction environments and conditions, which pose new challenges to structural engineering. Steel-concrete composite structures have broad application prospects in ocean engineering with significant performance advantages and comprehensive economic benefits as they successfully combine the respective advantages of steel and concrete. This paper summarizes the research work of composite structure research team of Tsinghua University with respect to the development and application of three types of composite structures in ocean engineering: cross-sea bridges, submarine immersed tunnels, and floating offshore platforms. Four new structural systems are proposed, including a long-span continuous beam bridge with integrated anti-crack technology, a double-steel-plate-concrete composite bridge tower suitable for cross-sea multi-tower cable-stayed bridges, a compartment steel-concrete-steel composite structure suitable for submarine immersed tunnels, and steel-concrete composite very large floating structure (VLFS).The key load-transferring mechanisms, mechanical performance, and design methods of the new structures are studied in depth, which are applied to the design of large-scale engineering projects such as the Dalian Bay Bridge, Nanjing No.5 Yangtze River Bridge, Shenzhen-Zhongshan Link, and offshore VLFS.Research and practice demonstrate that the new composite structural system has significant performance advantages and achieves satisfactory comprehensive economic benefits, thus providing new ideas and choices for ocean engineering construction and effectively promoting the application of steel-concrete composite structures in ocean engineering.
