Abstract
A comprehensive theory of composite construction was established in Germany by Sattler in 1953. The theoretical image of the composite section with a superior concrete slab and a lower metallic structure was shaped in addition to the analytical resolution. Theory and graphical representation were going to be known together in Europe. This figure was repeated in all theoretical and academic publications, so becoming an authentic icon of the composite section. Its translation to the bridge deck in flexion was obvious: the superior slab defines the tread platform, while the metallic structure was left off-hook at the bottom. Nevertheless, in continuous decks the section is not optimal at all in zones of negative bending moments. But the overcoming of the graphical representation of the theory did not happen immediately. It was produced after a process in which several European countries played an active role and where different mechanisms of technological transference were developed.
