Thesis title: Structural performance of composite beam-column connections incorporating advanced construction technology

Supervisors: Damith MOHOTTI , Chao HOU

Thesis abstract:

�p�Fully utilizing the desirable properties of steel and concrete, concrete-filled steel tube (CFST) members have aroused great concern in terms of strength, stiffness, ductility and construction speed. Meanwhile, with the development of materials science and modern techniques, some new construction technologies have been brought into the modern construction industry and further promote the widespread use of composite structures in construction projects. Up to now, structural analysis is mainly conducted for structures in the service stage and failure stage, while the behaviour of the composite joints, which is critical to composite structures, in the construction stage has rarely been assessed yet, indicating a need for specific research in this area, especially seeing that structures under construction have faced a more complex working environment with increased application of advanced construction technology. A full-range numerical investigation will be carried out to study the structural behaviour of the composite beam-column connections in the construction stage. The parametric analysis will be conducted to study the influence of different parameters on the structural behaviour of composite beam-column connection considering the effects of advanced construction technology and thus be used to facilitate the development of design guidelines.«/p»�/p�
