Fire responses and resistance of concrete-filled steel\ud tubular frame structures

By M. Yu, X. Zha, J. Ye and Y. Li


This paper presents the results of dynamic responses and fire resistance of concretefilled\ud steel tubular (CFST) frame structures in fire conditions by using non-linear finite element\ud method. Both strength and stability criteria are considered in the collapse analysis. The frame\ud structures are constructed with circular CFST columns and steel beams of I-sections. In order to\ud validate the finite element solutions, the numerical results are compared with those from a fire\ud resistance test on CFST columns. The finite element model is then adopted to simulate the\ud behaviour of frame structures in fire. The structural responses of the frames, including critical\ud temperature and fire-resisting limit time, are obtained for the ISO-834 standard fire. Parametric\ud studies are carried out to show their influence on the load capacity of the frame structures in fire.\ud Suggestions and recommendations are presented for possible adoption in future construction and\ud design of these structures
