Pinned - Fixed Beam - Column Resistance Verification According To European Standards
Verification of beam-column resistance can be accomplished according to design approaches given in EN 1993-1-1 . These approaches are derived from verification of single span beam with pinned end conditions subjected to compression and bending moments. In the case of different end conditions, the application of those approaches is not so accurate and more difficult. Therefore, the comparison of verification according to above standard EN 1993-1-1  as well as EN 1999-1-1  to results of experimental analyses of beam-columns having pinned-fixed end conditions subjected to an eccentric compressive force simulating the behaviour of columns integrated into frames is presented in this paper.
