Recent developments in composite connections

Recent developments in composite connections Eurocode 4 [1] suggests design rules for the evaluation of the mechanical properties of steel‐concrete beam‐to‐column composite joints (rotational stiffness, resistance and ductility). These rules cover situations where the joints are subjected to moments and shear forces, but in hogging regions only (negative bending moments). Recently, researches have been conducted on the behaviour of composite joints (Fig. 1) subjected to positive bending moments (called “sagging moments” in the following) and combined bending moments and axial loads; for instance, these loading situations may appear in composite sway frames under conventional loading and exceptional actions (impact, explosion …) leading to the loss of a structural column [2]. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Steel Construction: Design and Research Wiley

Abstract

Eurocode 4 [1] suggests design rules for the evaluation of the mechanical properties of steel‐concrete beam‐to‐column composite joints (rotational stiffness, resistance and ductility). These rules cover situations where the joints are subjected to moments and shear forces, but in hogging regions only (negative bending moments). Recently, researches have been conducted on the behaviour of composite joints (Fig. 1) subjected to positive bending moments (called “sagging moments” in the following) and combined bending moments and axial loads; for instance, these loading situations may appear in composite sway frames under conventional loading and exceptional actions (impact, explosion …) leading to the loss of a structural column [2].
