INVESTIGATION ON THE USE OF DEEP HAUNCHES IN COMPOSITE CONSTRUCTION

THIS PAPER REPORTS THE RESULTS OF AN EXPLORATORY INVESTIGATION ON THE USE OF COMPOSITE CONSTRUCTION WITH DEEP STEEP-SIDED HAUNCHES. VARIOUS TYPES OF PUSH-OFF TESTS WERE CARRIED OUT, TOGETHER WITH BEAM TESTS. THE RESULTS INDICATE THAT THE LOAD CARRYING CAPACITIES OF STUDS IN DEEP HAUNCHES ARE LOWER THAN THOSE IN THE NORMAL TYPE OF COMPOSITE CONSTRUCTION, BUT THAT NEVERTHELESS, THE METHOD IS A FEASIBLE FORM OF CONSTRUCTION AND APPEARS TO OFFER SOME ECONOMY. /AUTHOR/
