Title: The behavior of steel beam-column joints subjected to catenary action

Abstract: Progressive collapse in a building occurs when the steel connection is unable to resist the abnormal loads imposed to it. Failure in one part of the structure can lead to an unstable mechanism in the load transferring process. If the damaged system is incapable of reaching a new static equilibrium, unexpectedly global collapse of the structure will occur. Ductile and robust bolted steel connections are necessary to maintain the structural integrity and mitigate progressive collapse of the entire system. Limited investigation of the behavior of steel connections has been studied under column removal scenarios. The main objective of the final year report is to study the behavior of beam-column joints subjected to catenary action using finite element modeling.
