Paper Title:
Experimental Study on SNCF of Welded CHS-CFSHS T-Joints under Axial Loading
  Abstract

The initiation position can be predicted by studying on strain concentration factors (SNCF) and SNCF distributions. This paper concerns an experimental investigation of SNCF of welded T-joints composed of circular hollow section (CHS) braces and concrete-filled square hollow section (CFSHS) chords under axial loading on the braces with two load cases of tension and compression. Static experiments were performed on eight test specimens designed for considering different non-dimensional geometric parameters and C50 grade concrete. Compared with joints made of CHS-SHS, the experimental results indicate that the CHS-CFSHS T-joints have lower strain concentration factors which may increase fatigue strength. The position of the maximum SNCF is usually located at 00 or 900 of the intersection line between a CHS brace and a CFSHS chord.
