The mechanical features of beam-to-column joints may highly affect the resistance of steel structures at elevated temperature.

Abstract

The mechanical features of beam-to-column joints may highly affect the resistance of steel structures at elevated temperature. Therefore, the behaviour of steel joints under elevated temperature has been widely studied. However, few studies have been specifically devoted at investigating the response of bolted end-plate joints under elevated temperature that were formerly damaged by seismic actions. Hence, the study summarized in this article was addressed to: (i) to analyse the response of seismically prequalified extended stiffened end-plate joints under high temperature; (ii) study the influence of the seismic damage on performance of this type of joints at elevated temperature. Parametric finite element simulations were carried out to achieve these purposes varying the dimensions of members, the design criteria of the joints, the vertical loads, the presence of lateral-torsional restraints and the level of imposed damage. The obtained results in terms of moment-rotation-temperature characteristics and pattern of plastic deformations showed in which terms the type of cyclic damage may affect the performance of the joints under high temperature as well as the influence of the efficiency of bracings to restrain the beams against lateral-torsional buckling.
