Abstract

Semi-rigid composite connection with precast hollowcore slab is a newly developed technique with few applications in the current construction practice. The research on the structural behaviours of this new type of connection is limited with no existing method available to predict its important characteristics as moment and rotation capacities. In this paper, based on the parametric studies of 3D finite element model and full scale tests, the analytical method to calculate the moment and rotation capacity of this type of composite joints were proposed. A comparison between the proposed calculation method and the full scale test results was made, good agreement is obtained.
