Paper Title:
Experiment Study on Cyclic Behavior of Concrete Filled Steel Tube (CFST) Column-Reinforced Concrete (RC) Beam Connections
  Abstract

The test results of six connections under cyclic loading are presented in the paper. Each test specimen was properly designed to model the interior joint of a moment resisting frame, and was identically comprised of three parts that including the circular concrete filled steel tube columns, the reinforced concrete beams, and the short fabricated connection stubs. Energy dissipation was designed to occur in the beams during a severe earthquake. Steel bars which were embedded into concrete core and welded to the connection stubs, were used to transfer the force distributed by the reinforcing bars of concrete beam to the concrete core. The results indicated that the embedded steel bars were very efficient in eliminating the stress concentration on the tube wall and there was no visible deformation occurred on the tube wall until the collapse of the specimen. Furthermore, the connection of each specimen had enough capacity and thus the plastic hinge appeared in the beams. As results, the ductility of this new type structure directly depended on the RC beams.
