The truncation of steel sections in Steel Reinforced Concrete-Reinforced Concrete (SRC-RC) transfer columns may lead to a distortion in the internal force transmission. A refined finite element model of SRC-RC transfer columns was developed in this study taking into consideration the effects of different confinement around concrete. According to the internal force and deformation characteristics of a transfer column, the shear capacity of the SRC-RC transfer column was investigated, and the results compared well with existing experimental results. Extensive parametric studies were conducted and crosschecked with the current code. It is found that the current specification may not always ensure the shear failure capacity since it is intrinsically affected by both the internal force and deformation characteristics of the transfer column. A modified formula has been proposed, by which more rational design of structural members may be expected, brittle failure can be avoided and ductility will be improved. Keywords: SRC-RC transition column; transmission distortion; finite element model; shear capacity 1. Introduction dominated by shear failure, and the flexural failure A Steel Reinforced Concrete-Reinforced Concrete and bond failure were mainly observed in specimens (SRC-RC) transfer column behaves as the connection with greater extending height of steel. The influence between the upper and lower members by extending of different structural measures on the seismic the steel of the SRC or steel column to the adjacent performance of transfer columns was studied through members.

However, calculation methods Konno et al.

Cyclic tests of 7 shear capacity formula for transfer columns in the SRC-RC transfer columns were performed by Kimura Japanese Code, which is derived from the ultimate et al.

Furthermore, the Reinforcement Bars RC part is divided into three zones, which are highly The stress-strain curves for structural steel and the confined concrete, partially confined concrete and reinforcement bars, provided by the Chinese Code for unconfined concrete zones with different states of Design of Concrete Structures GB 50010-2010 (2010), confinement, as shown in Fig.1. were adopted in this study with values of yield stress (f ) and ultimate stress (f ) measured in the tests. The ys us material behavior provided by ABAQUS (using the *PLASTIC option) allows a nonlinear stress-strain curve to be used. The first part of the nonlinear curve represents the elastic behavior up to the proportional limit stress with a Young's modulus of 200 GPa and Poisson's ratio equal to 0.3. 2.4 Material Modeling of Concrete In this case, the concrete strength is considerably improved because of confinement by the steel and reinforcements. Thus, a confined concrete model needs to be developed, based on the experimental results. The model proposed by Popovics (1973) and Collins et al. (1993) was adopted to simulate the concrete behavior Fig.1. Modeling of SRC-RC Transfer Column in compression.

Therefore, the calculation of the shear capacity for a 6. Conclusions transfer column is much safer when the inflection point In an SRC-RC transfer column, the sudden change is simply considered to be at the center of the column in stiffness caused by the local variation in the steel according to the code. section will result in moment distribution changes To validate the rationality and reliability for the at the ends of the column. Thus, in consequence, the proposed modified formula for the shear capacity, the inflection point of the column may move toward the above finite element method is adopted to establish RC part. Based on the mechanical behavior of SRC- the models of specimens as in Suzuki et al. (1994). RC transfer columns, the shear capacity formula The dimensions of section (B × D) are 400 mm × 400 under different failure modes has been studied. The mm, and the other parameters of the specimens are calculated values agree with the test results. It is presented in Table 5. found that the shear capacity formula provided by the The values calculated by the code and the modified current code may not always ensure the shear failure formula are compared with the ultimate shear capacity capacity while the proposed modified formula, which of the tests, as shown in Table 6. It can be found that reduces the shear capacity provided by stirrups, will the shear capacity calculated by the code is close to lead to a more rational design of structural members by the test results. However when the space of stirrups preventing brittle failure and improving ductility. gets smaller, the shear capacity tends to be greater and unsafe. Meanwhile, the values obtained by the modified formula are approximately 0.7-0.9 times that of the test values, providing enough redundancy and safety.
