Bending Behavior Analysis of Composite Girders with Concrete Filled Tubular Flange
In order to study the bending capacity of steel and concrete composite girder with concrete filled tubular flange (SCCGCFTF), a formula for the ultimate bending capacity of normal section was proposed based on perfected elastic-plastic model for steel and restricted concrete model for inner high performance self-compacted concrete. Analysis result shows that the mechanical behavior under static load can be divided into two phases in accordance with confining effects. Confining effects strength of the concrete-filled steel tube flange was relation to the restriction effect coefficient ξ. The ratios of the calculated value to the experimental ultimate bending capacity were between 0.93 and 0.97. Therefore, the theoretical formula is relatively safe to calculate the ultimate bending capacity.
