Bending Test on Composite Timber-Steel-Concrete Floor Equipped with Innovative Collar Connectors

Abstract:

Article Preview

In this paper a full scale monotonic static bending test on a composite timber-steel-concrete floor, equipped with innovative “collar” connectors, is illustrated. In particular, the specimen consists of two beams, made of ancient chestnut, connected to the concrete reinforced slab by means of purposely fitted upside wings of steel collars astride the beams themselves. The test is part of a comprehensive research activity, aiming at the evaluation and optimization of the collar connection device, developed within the European project PROHITECH (“Earthquake Protection of Historical Buildings by Reversible Mixed Technology”, 2004-2008).
