Abstract


The behaviour of steel and composite beam-column joints was investigated in this paper. A test programme on typical beam-column joints subjected to quasi-static and impact loads was presented. A comparison of different connections was conducted and composite slab effect was investigated. Based on the test results, a component-based modelling approach was proposed and validated. Basic nonlinear springs of beam-column joint models were developed. Mechanical properties of the nonlinear springs were defined based on either current design codes or models proposed by previous researchers. Good agreement with test results was achieved by the component-based models.
