High-Temperature Thermal Properties of Sprayed and Infill-Type Fire-Resistant Materials Used in Steel-Tube Columns

In order to investigate the fire performance of steel tube and concrete-filled steel tube (CFT) columns with fire-resistant materials, high-temperature thermal properties tests were performed to measure the thermal conductivity, specific heat, and …


Predictive Formulation for the Ultimate Combinations of Axial Force and Bending Moment Attainable by Steel Members

This paper is devoted to quantitative safety assessment of steel beam-columns, and delivers a plain analytical formulation for predicting the ultimate combinations of axial force and bending moment, allowing for material and geometric …


Experimental Study on Mechanical Behavior of Prefabricated PEC Composite Beams Under Cyclic Loading

In this paper, a new type prefabricated partially encased composite beam (PEC beam) using screw arbors instead of stirrups or welded transverse links in ordinary PEC structures to connect the upper and lower steel flange has been proposed. It not …


Finite Element Analysis on Seismic Behaviour of Novel Joint in Prefabricated Modular Steel Building

In prefabricated modular steel building, joint plays an important role in the structural behaviour and transfer of load among connected modules. In this paper, a new type of bolted joint with tenon-gusset plate as horizontal connection and long …


Seismic Performance Evaluation of Steel Box-Column Connections with ESW Stiffeners

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the seismic performance of steel box-column connections with electro-slag welding (ESW) stiffeners. Steel box columns have been widely adopted in seismically active areas, such as Japan and Taiwan. It is a …
