Abstract


In this paper, the performances of a generic three dimensional 45m x 45m composite floor subjected to ISO834 Fire and Natural Fire are investigated. The influences of reinforcing steel mesh and vertical support conditions on the tensile membrane action of floor slabs are investigated in details. Two robust 2-node connection element models developed by the authors are used to model the behaviour of end-plate and partial end-plate connections of composite structures under fire conditions. The impact of connections on the 3D behaviour of composite floor is considered. Based on the results obtained, some design recommendations are proposed to enhance the fire safety design of composite buildings.
