Abstract

A series of connection tests were carried out to study the behavior of connections between concrete filled Square Hollow Section(SHS) columns and composite W-section beams. The test connections were four different semi-rigid types selected for application to multi -story building frames. The initial flexural rigidities were estimated by different theories and compared with the simple beam. Moment-roration relations were simulated using a finite element program and a simple power model was proposed to predict the moment-rotation behavior of connections.

Moment Rotation Behavior for Concrete Filled SHS Column to Composite Beam Connections

A series of connection tests were carried out to study the behavior of connections between concrete filled Square Hollow Section(SHS) columns and composite W-section beams. The test connections were four different semi-rigid types selected for application to multi -story building frames. The initial flexural rigidities were estimated by different theories and compared with the simple beam. Moment-roration relations were simulated using a finite element program and a simple power model was proposed to predict the moment-rotation behavior of connections.
