Abstract

The present article describes experimental tests performed on bolts and welds at the Centro Sviluppo Materiali under heating and subsequent cooling. Force-displacement laws, calibrated on these tests, are proposed afterwards for bolts in tension, bolts in shear and butt welds in shear during a natural fire. These laws can be integrated into models representing the global behaviour of steel and composite joints, based on the Component Method.
