Ductility Effects of End Details in Composite Beams
A limit states criterion is described for quantifying the rotation capacity of members in indeterminate structures as a means of classifying ductility of structures during plastic behaviour...

Seismic Response of Composite Coupled Walls
In many structures, height restrictions may require coupling of reinforced concrete walls by structural steel beams rather than conventional reinforced concrete beams. Through an experimental...

Connection of Beam Flange to Concrete-Filled Tubular Column
Research has been carried out on a frame composed of a concrete-filled steel tubular column and H-shaped steel beam with the aim of developing a reasonable connection method. The proposed...

Full-scale Tests on Composite Connections
Tests have been carried out on eight full-scale composite connections in which the columns were manufactured of concrete-filled steel circular hollow sections (CHS). The connections were...

Connections of Concrete Filled Steel Beams
The concrete between the steel flanges of composite beams leads to problems in the connection area. To solve these problems four new types of beam-girder and beam-column connections are...

Application and Recent Development of a Numerical Model for Composite Beams with Partial Shear Connection
This paper deals with numeric analysis of composite steel and concrete beams for loads up to the ultimate beam capacity. Two versions of a numerical model are presented addressing such...

Influence on Steel Deck on Composite Beam Strength
Results of a recent study were described in which 7 push-out tests and 4 composite beam tests were conducted. The results were consistent with other recent studies reported in the literature,...

Composite Beams with Headed Studs in Narrow Ribbed Metal Deck
This paper presents the results of sixteen push-out tests conducted to study the behavior of headed stud connectors in composite beams with narrow ribbed metal deck placed parallel to...

Strength Deterioration Behavior of Concrete-Filled Steel Tubular Beam-Columns
Cantilever beam-columns of steel square hollow section with or without filled-concrete were tested under constant axial load and alternately repeated horizontal load to investigate the...

New Steel Beam to Composite Column Connection Detail
Composite columns consisting of hollow steel tubes filled with high strength concrete with compressive strength exceeding 10000 psi (69 MPa) are being used in high-rise buildings. Connecting...

The Behaviour of Reinforced Concrete Beams Manufactured with Side Profile Sheets
The paper describes in qualitative terms the fundamental principles that control the behaviour of a completely new form of construction in which reinforced concrete beams are constructed...

Cathodic Protection for Protecting Prestressed Concrete
Due to the good effect of corrosion protection of reinforcing steel bars, even in concrete highly chloride contaminated, cathodic protection for concrete structure now carried out as a...

Removal, Replacement and Rehabilitation of Concrete Slabs
The project involved existing one-way slabs experiencing severe corrosion damage. The slabs were removed and replaced while salvaging the concrete beams and frame components. Significant...

Automated Design of the Steel Box Girder Guideway for the Kuala Lumpur Downtown People-Mover
Design of the Kuala Lumpur (KL) Downtown People-Mover had to be accomplished on a fast-track schedule. The system contractor assembled a team of experts from North America and Malaysia...

A Distributed Parameter Model for the Dynamic Analysis of Beam-like Structures with Varied Sectional Properties

How to Optimize Reinforced Concrete Systems
A straightforward procedure for the optimization of member dimensions and reinforcement design in concrete structures consisting of beams, slabs, and columns is presented. The procedure...

Serviceability Reliability Analysis of Wood Beams
The effect of creep deformations on the serviceability reliability of single wood beams is investigated. Using stochastic load models and a time-dependent stress-strain relationship, the...

Nonlinear Analysis of RC Beams Using High Performance FRC Matrices
The results of a nonlinear analysis model of reinforced concrete beams using a high performance fiber reinforced cement based matrix, particularly SIFCON (Slurry Infiltrated Fiber Concrete)...

Seismic Performance Behavior of Precast Concrete Beam-Column Joints
The experimental test program being conducted at the National Institute of Standards and Technology on 1/3-scale model precast concrete beam-to-column connections is summarized. The objective...

Serviceability Stress Limits for Composite Beams
Serviceability limits are increasingly becoming the critical design requirement for composite beams. A set of three illustrative design studies indicates that this is particularly true...
