Yang, Y., Bei, X. and Fu, F. ORCID: 0000-0002-9176-8159 (2021). Static performance of square CFDST chord to steel SHS brace T-joints. Journal of Constructional Steel Research,


In this paper, static performance of square concrete-filled double-skin steel tube (CFDST) chord to steel square hollow section (SHS) brace T-joints are investigated through experimental and numerical studies. Twelve specimens, including 8 T-joints with square CFDST chord, 2 T-joints with square concrete-filled steel tube (CFST) chord and 2 T-joints with steel SHS chord as counterparts, were tested under continuously increasing compressive force on the brace with concentric compression load applied simultaneously to the chord. The influence of chord type, brace-to-chord width ratio (
