Bending Experimental Investigation for Concrete-Filled Rectangular Tubular Flange Composite Girders
A new steel-concrete composite girder which is an I-shaped girder with concrete-filled rectangular tubular flange was proposed in this paper. The web depth of the new composite girder is reduced, and lateral torsion buckling stiffness is improved, which can increase the buckling capacity of the girder. In order to study the bending capacity of concrete-filled rectangular tubular flange composite girders (CFRTFCG), the static tests of CFRTFCG with flat and corrugated webs under concentrate lateral loads had been performed. Based on the test results, the bending limit load capacity and mechanical behavior of the specimens were obtained, the bending failure mechanisms of CFRTFCG were also summarized.
