Space truss is a three dimensional assembly of linear elements in which load get transferred in three dimensional manners. It is used to cover large area as roof system. The space truss with concrete slab can act a floor system with proper shear connector. This paper details with analytical behaviour of the composite space truss against the published experimental results. The parameters varied in the study are slab thickness, concrete strength and module size of the space truss. The stiffness, energy absorption capacity and ductility factor for the composite space truss was found and compared.
