Structural behaviour of external diaphragm

Researcher: Mr Majd Khador
Project duration: 3 years
Supervisor: Dr T-M Chan
Funding body: Syrian Government, EPSRC and TATA Steel

Project Description

This research aims to develop a joint configuration with multi-fuse energy dissipative mechanism where the maximum portion of energy is dissipated by the replaceable components of the connection – tapered cover plates. The results will inform engineers the efficient and effective design of joint between I-section beams and tubular columns in seismic-resistant moment frame.
