    • Full-range behaviour of semi-rigid steel connections 

      Zhu, Chen; Jiang, Luli; Rasmussen, Kim; Yan, Shen; Zhang, Hao (9th International Conference on Advances in Steel Structures, 2018-12)
      The paper summarises recent research programs undertaken at the University of Sydney on determining the full-range behaviour of steel connections including post-peak softening and fracture. The overall context of this work ...
    • Generalised Component Model for Structural Steel Joints 

      Zhu, Chen; Rasmussen, Kim; Yan, Shen (Elsevier, 2019-02)
      This paper presents a generalised component model for structural steel joints that extends the Component Method to the post-ultimate and post-fracture ranges. In this approach, a tri-linear spring model was developed for ...
    • Recent developments on the Component Method 

      Rasmussen, Kim; Zhao, Xianzhong; Yan, Shen; Dai, Liusi; Zhu, Chen; Jiang, Luli (The 14th Nordic Steel Construction Conference, 2019-09-16)
      The Component Method is well established and incorporated in Part 1.8 of Eurocode3 for the design of connections of steel frameworks. It is primarily intended to provide the elastic joint stiffness, although Part 1.8 ...
    • Experimental investigation of full-range action-deformation behaviour of top-and-seat angle and web angle connections 

      Jiang, Luli; Rasmussen, Kim; Zhang, Hao (9th international conference on Advances in Steel Structures, 2018-12)
      Web angle connections are usually categorized as a type of pinned connection whose moment resisting capacity is assumed negligible. Hence, there is a lack of experimental data in regard to the moment-rotation behavior of ...
    • Fracture simulation of constructional steels in two fracture modes 

      Yan, Shen; Rasmussen, Kim; Zhao, Xianzhong (9th International Conference on Steel and Aluminium Structures, 2019-07)
      The paper presents a comprehensive study, aiming to provide useful tools for numerically predicting the fracture phenomenon in steel structures. A micro-mechanically-based fracture model is proposed, which comprises two ...
