Effect of Detailed Formations on the Tension (Compression) Property of Hairpin Connectors in Precast RC Floor Slabs
The detailed formations of precast floor slab connectors have significant effect on its axial capacity, but there is no such specific provision on it at present. The effects of detailed formations on the in-plane tension (compression) strength, stiffness and deformation capacity of hairpin connectors (HPC) is studied, through numerical simulation analysis under in-plane tension (compression) force. The slug length (h), steel plate thickness (t) and its stickout(s) are taken as parameters. On the basis of analysis, recommendations on formation details of HPC are proposed for design and construction.
