Abstract: This paper discusses the load bearing mechanism of the connection joins between reinforced concrete columns and steel girders. The discussion is based on the experimental results and data that have been obtained from six pieces of specimens.
Because of the complexity of the bearing mechanism in the vicinity of the connection joints, the authors selected one experimental parameter in common for all of the specimens: the steel girder is arranged to penetrate into the joint core. Additional reinforcing steel parts are necessary to be placed inside of the panel zone so that the bending moment of the steel girder should be transferred to the columns by way of the connection joint. These reinforcing parts are the key parameters for this experimental study: 1 Band Plate, 2 Face Bearing Plate, and 3 Steel Web Plate. Attention is paid to the load bearing strength, stiffness, deformation capacity, and ductility factor associated with the panel zone. The experimentally obtained and clarified roles of those plates are stated qualitatively at the end of the paper.
