Crack Resistance of Connections of Cross Shaped Steel Encased Ultra High-Strength Concrete Column to RC Beam under Cycle Loads
In order to investigate the crack resistance capacity of cross shaped steel encased ultra high-strength concrete (CSSEUHSC) column to reinforced concrete (RC) beam connection subjected to reversal cycle load, six interior joint specimens were tested with various axial load ratio nt and volumetric stirrup ratio ρv. A discussion on the crack resistance capacity was presented. Calculation methods of crack resistance capacity were deduced and calculating results were in good agreement with the experimental results. The research results indicated that parameters of CSSEUHSC column to RC beam connection with better crack resistance performance may be referred for engineering application.
