ABSTRACT

Multi Storied structures are used worldwide and have outstanding advantages in the use of composite materials in structural application. This study heads to an experimental study to reproduce the behavior on a composite joint configuration. Due to the lack of knowledge, during the last few years a lot of studies are based on the semi-rigid composite joints that can provide useful data about the behavior and the resistance of these connections. A number of two tests were performed to obtain a better development of the joint behavior. Finally, the composite connection’s behavior is discussed in detail, conclusions and some recommendation are presented.
