Preliminary Study on Post-Fire Behavior of Composite Frame with CFST Columns and Composite Beam
A 3-D finite element model (FEM) using ABAQUS was introduced in this paper to simulate the post-fire behavior of composite frames with concrete-filled steel tubular (CFST) columns and steel beam with reinforced concrete slab. Accurate thermal and material model, element type, and solution method were assumed in the model considering the temperature effect during the fire. Some composite joint specimen post-fire tests were modeled using the FEM. The results obtained from the FEM were verified against those experimental results. The mechanism of the composite frame was investigated based on the FEM.
