Technological development, thanks to which high-performance materials were produced, allowed engineers to design elegant structures, which in the total load have smaller share of dead weight. All this gave an opportunity to bridge the large spans. Technological development is accompanied by the development of powerful computer software that is able to, in the phase of construction modelling, include many parameters. Thanks to that, designers have a better insight into how elements behave under load, and they are able to choose how to use material and exploit their good characteristics. Composite structures, formed by coupling of steel and concrete, rank among the modern structures. Their advantage lies in the fact that the steel part of the cross-section takes part in tensile stresses transfer, while the concrete part, because of its massiveness, takes part in compressive stress transfer. Redistribution of stresses in one composite cross-section depends on many factors. In this paper, using finite element method, the influence of number coupling points on the deformation of simply supported beam, with a composite cross-section was analyzed. The span of the beam is 5m.
