The demand for economic and eco-efficient solutions in construction industry is particularly enforcing efficient design and construction methods. The design of composite construction according to the plastic hinge theory in combination with semi-rigid joints provides one contemporary promising answer to these demands. This combination enables to mobilize almost all cross section- and system reserves. However, the capability for redistribution of the bending moment from internal support to mid-span, to activate these system reserves, requires sufficient rotation capacity of the composite beam and, especially, the connections. This paper presents design guidance on plastic and robust design of composite beams with semi-rigid composite connections with special focus on the influence of the reinforcement (ratio, diameter and type). With the provision of an engineering logic, new opportunities to design elegant and slender structures are given to engineers in a simple way. [less ▲]

Due to the rising cost pressures in the construction industry, it is particularly important to choose efficient design methods to achieve economic structures. The use of the plastic hinge theory may lead to good results within the steel and composite construction industry because cross section- and system reserves can almost fully used. This means for the normal composite beam a redistribution of the bending moment from the support section to the field section. This redistribution causes an increase of the rotation at the composite connection. The presented tests show the influence of the reinforcement (type of reinforcement and reinforcement ratio) to the rotation capacity of the connection. The increased rotation requirements of composite connections in the area of plastic hinges should already be take in to account at planning state. [less ▲]
