dc.description.abstractThis paper presents the results of a simulation study of 10 fire tests on restrained steel beam–column assemblies using five different types of joints: fin plate, flexible endplate, flush endplate, web cleat and extended endplate. This paper will provide details of the simulation methodology for achieving numerical stability and faithful representation of detailed structural behaviour, and compare the simulation and experimental results, including joint failure modes, measured beam axial forces and beam mid-span deflections. Good agreement between ABAQUS simulations and experimental observations confirms that the finite element models developed through the ABAQUS/Standard solver are suitable for predicting the structural fire behaviour of restrained structural assemblies with realistic steel joints undergoing different phases of behaviour in fire, including restrained thermal expansion and catenary action in the beams. The validated model may be used to conduct numerical parametric studies to generate theoretical data to help develop detailed understanding of steel joint behaviour and their effects on robustness of steel framed structures in fire.en_US
