Shear Mechanism and Bearing Capacity Calculation of Composite Joints with Steel Truss SRC Beam
In order to research the seismic performance, eight joints with steel truss SRC beam and RC column under low-cyclic reversed load was conducted, and the failure process and patterns were observed. The test indicates that two types of failure patterns can be seen from specimens, including shear failure and bending failure. By the analysis of the failure characteristics and mechanism of joints, the load-displacement hysteretic curves and load-strain hysteretic curves are presented, and the formula for calculating ultimate shear capacity of joints is gained finally. The calculating results are in good agreement with those of tests.
