Behaviour of Steel Beam-to-Column Connections in Fire

The paper presents the results of fire tests on eight beam-to-column connections, typical of those used in modern framed buildings. Five tests were on non-composite beams, two on composite beams,and one on a shelf angle floor beam. Both protected and unprotected members were included. The tests demonstrated the ‘robustness’ of these connections in fire and showed that signifcant moments (up to two-thirds of their design moment capacity) could be sustained in fire conditions. R.M.
