Experimental Study on Strength of Connections to Concrete Filled Tubular in Fire

Abstract:

Article Preview

Concrete filled tubular columns are widely used all over the world, due to their significant advantages, including attractive appearance, structural efficiency, reduced column footing, fast construction and high fire resistance without external fire protection. An experimental study has been carried out on the performance of joints between steel beams and concrete filled tubular columns in simple construction under fire conditions. The failure modes of the test specimens were always in the joint regions. Therefore, if the joints are appropriately designed and protected so that they possess sufficient strength, it is possible for the steel beam to develop catenary action and survive very high temperatures even without fire protection.
