The current study presents a comprehensive review of the state-of-the-art on composite cold-formed steel flooring research over the past couple of years. The most relevant and significant literature references were reviewed to provide some profundity in the trends and development of the composite cold-formed steel floors. Advantages of this type of composite flooring system are also highlighted. A broad description of mainly two types of the composite floors mainly consisting cold-formed steel and concrete, and cold-formed steel and timber-based floorboards have been outlined in this study. The experimental and numerical investigations that have been carried out worldwide is likewise discussed in the paper. The most important aspects covered are shear connection behaviour, flexural and dynamic behaviour of the floors, and a brief description of fire testing.
