Abstract

A collaborative research project supported by the American Institute of Steel Construction and the National Science Foundation is underway at the University of Washington, Purdue University and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign to investigate the structural integrity of steel gravity frame systems. This comprehensive research program incorporates experiments exploring the behavior of critical components, including steel connections and composite concrete slab on metal deck, and also the behavior of complete steel gravity frame systems. This paper provides an overview of the key experimental components of the research program and presents results from the initial phases.
