[en] Composite joints ; semi-continuous ; rotation capacity
[en] Composite beam-to-column joints in buildings are mostly modelled as pinned joints in
order to facilitate the design of the structure. In reality, due to the required reinforcement
in the concrete slab, a certain joint rigidity and bending resistance is always available. The
real joint behaviour corresponds therefore more to that of a semi-continuous joint. This is
not only beneficial for the serviceability limit state but can also be advantageous at ultimate
limit state. However, due to the lack of analytical design rules in EN 1994 to verify the
rotation capacity of semi-continuous joints, these are commonly modelled as pinned joints,
which impedes an efficient design of composite structures.
In this context, a research program on the behaviour of composite joints, focusing on the
ultimate rotation capacity, was initiated at the University of Luxembourg [1]. The aim was
to identify the influence of two major joint components – the reinforced concrete slab and
the steelwork connection – on the moment-rotation curves of composite joints under
hogging bending moment. An experimental campaign comprising 8 tests on beam-tocolumn
joints was conducted to determine the response of composite joints with variable
reinforcement ratio and diameter of reinforcing bars. In addition to the experimental part,
an FE model was developed with the software ABAQUS aiming to simulate the behaviour
of internal beam-to-column composite joints.
In this paper, the 3D finite element model and results of analyses are presented. The FE
model has been defined by 3D solid elements with realistic contact definitions and nonlinear
material laws. The results of the numerical simulations presented a good agreement
with the experimental data. Based on the experimental and numerical investigations, the
influence of reinforcement and steelwork connection on the structural properties of
composite joints is derived. A new analytical method to determine the stiffness and rotation
capacity of composite joints is proposed. The accuracy of this new method is confirmed by
existing experimental and numerical results.
