Overview of the Research on Connections in Composite Frames Consisting of Reinforced Concrete Column and Steel Beam
Frames consisting of reinforced concrete column and steel beam (RCS) is a new type of composite structures. Background of the research and application of the RCS composite joints and composite frames are overviewed detailedly in this paper. Then the research evolution of the RCS composite joints including experimental research and numerical simulation in America, Japan and China are described in detail. Finally some problems existing and the development directions of research on RCS framing systems in future are pointed out.
