Improved details for fire-induced steel single plate shear connections

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The objective of this paper is to identify cost-effective improved modification details for single plate (i.e., shear tab or fin plate) shear connections in a fire. Using ABAQUS, we developed a finite element model of a single plate connection that was tested full scale in Cardington. We modified several connection details to find modifications that led to increased strength and/or ductility, where an increase in either one also meant an increase in fire resistance time. The results illustrate some simple modifications to the connection design that improve the connection's fire performance.
