This paper presents an experimental and numerical study on a ductile beam-column connection between a composite reinforced concrete truss (CRCT) beam and a reinforced concrete (RC) or concrete-filled tube (CFT) column subjected to bending and shear loads. Two experimental models with different beam-column joint testing schemes, extracted from the same prototype three-dimensional structure designed according to the rules of the capacity design provided by seismic code, were subjected to quasi-static cyclic tests by applying gravitational loads and the horizontal seismic force. The main objective of this paper is to verify the ductile behavior of both specimens experimentally and to simulate the experimental global and local responses by nonlinear static analysis, considering different modeling approaches. The comparison between the experimental and numerical results highlights, for both models considered, the ductile and dissipative capacity of the connection system, designed following the criteria of the hierarchy of resistances proposed by the current Italian code. The results of different experimental setups demonstrate that the tests can be repeated and the results can be reproduced by means of simple nonlinear models

Abstract

This paper presents an experimental and numerical study on a ductile beam-column connection between a composite reinforced concrete truss (CRCT) beam and a reinforced concrete (RC) or concrete-filled tube (CFT) column subjected to bending and shear loads. Two experimental models with different beam-column joint testing schemes, extracted from the same prototype three-dimensional structure designed according to the rules of the capacity design provided by seismic code, were subjected to quasi-static cyclic tests by applying gravitational loads and the horizontal seismic force. The main objective of this paper is to verify the ductile behavior of both specimens experimentally and to simulate the experimental global and local responses by nonlinear static analysis, considering different modeling approaches. The comparison between the experimental and numerical results highlights, for both models considered, the ductile and dissipative capacity of the connection system, designed following the criteria of the hierarchy of resistances proposed by the current Italian code. The results of different experimental setups demonstrate that the tests can be repeated and the results can be reproduced by means of simple nonlinear models
