Abstract

This paper describes an experimental study at elevated temperatures on the behaviour of full scale composite floor cellular steel beams. A total of four specimens, comprising two different steel geometries, applied load ratios and different temperature time curves. All beams were designed for a full shear connection between the steel beam and the concrete flange using shear studs. The beams were designed to fail by web buckling, which was observed in all the tests. A finite element model is then established with both material and geometrical non-linearity using shell elements to compare the experimental results. The comparison between the finite element prediction and actual tests results are quite good in terms of failure modes, load deflection behaviour and ultimate loads. © 2007 Taylor & Francis Group.
