Abstract

This paper presents numerical results of connections tested under fire loading. Understanding the behavior of steel frames under fire loading is critical since many numerical and experimental studies have been performed to investigate the behavior of various types of individual steel structural members, connections, and frames under fire conditions. Reduced Beam Section (RBS) connection is widely investigated and used in US, Japan and Europe. However, design of such type of connection is not presented and used in India. This study is conducted to learn, the advantages and usefulness of RBS connection against connection without RBS for Indian profiles. Different patterns of reduced beam sections were analyzed and compared with the simulation results of an unreduced beam section.
