Dept. JFE Steel Corporation

2 Steel Tubes Infilled with Ultra High Strength Materials for High-rise Construction Abstract: High strength construction materials are now increasingly used due to its economic and architectural advantages, as well as the need for sustainable construction. However, limited research data and design guidelines are available to extend the applications of ultra high strength materials for high rise construction. This paper presents significant findings from a comprehensive experimental investigation on the behavior of concrete filled steel tubes with high strength materials at ambient and elevated temperatures, including high strength material properties, stub columns, beams and slender beam columns. High strength materials includehigh strength steel with yield strength up to 700MPa and ultra high strength concrete with compressive strength up to 180MPa. The test results were compared with predictions by extending Eurocode 4 approach. It is found that it is feasible to use high strength materials in high rise construction and current Eurocode 4 approach can be safely extended to such materials with minor modifications. Professor Richard LIEW graduated from NUS with a Bachelor degree in 1986 and Master of Engineering degree in 1988 and from Purdue University, USA with a PhD in He subsequently returned to NUS and became a full time academic staff. He is currently the programme director of Hazard, Risk and Mitigation with the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering in NUS. He is a registered Professional Engineer in Singapore, an ASEAN Chartered Professional Engineer and a Chartered Engineer in the United Kingdom. He is a Fellow of the Academy of Engineering Singapore and the past president of the Singapore Structural t Steel Society. Prof fliew was conferred dth the Honorary Fellow by the Singapore Structural Steel Society in 2010 and by the Hong Kong Institute of Steel Construction in 2011 for his leadership roles in structural steel industry and business communities in Singapore and Hong Kong. He has delivered numerous keynote lectures world wide on topics related to structural steel design and construction. Prof. Liew is also the Convenor responsible for developing the Singapore national annexes for Eurocodes 3 and 4, the codes of practice for design steel and composite structures.

3 Concrete Filled Steel Tubular Structure Abstract: The main subject of this presentation is to show advantages of CFT structure in structural performance and fire resistance performance. CFT, whose name originates from C oncrete F illed steel T ube, is a kind of steel concrete composite structure. Steel concrete composite structure is generally suitable for columns with axial compression and bending, because the concrete is fitted for resisting axial compression load while the steel mainly resists bending. Since infilled concrete of a CFT column is fully encased, CFT columns have higher structural performance than other composite structures. The mechanism of improving structural performance of CFT columns, called confinement effect, is explained by analyzed short column test. Although fire resistance design should be taken into account to construct steel structure, CFT columns out perform steel columns in fire resistance due to thermal capacity of in filled concrete. Mr. Takayuki NANBA graduated from Kyoto University, Japan, with a Bachelor degree in 1995 and a Master of Engineering g degree in Since then, Mr. Nanba has worked in the steel fabrication and construction industry for more than fifteen years, beginning with NKK Japan, which is now known as JFE Steel Corporation that was established from the mergerof NKKandKawasaki Kawasaki SteelinApril Mr. Nanbais currently a Senior Researcher in the Steel Research Laboratory of the Civil Engineering Research Department of JFE Steel Corporation Japan.

4 Abstract: TMCP Steel Plates for Buildings TMCP steel plates are manufactured by thermo mechanical control rolling method, and, in Japan, widely used for building frames such as welded BOX section, welded H girder, etc. The plates had become popular after KOBE earthquake, due to their advantages in design strength and fabrication over the conventional steel plates. This presentation will be focused on features and benefits of TMCP steel plates. Topics will include Manufacturing Process of TMCP steel plates, their specifications in various standards, advantage in design strength and fabrication, as well as the applications. Mr. Koji OKI graduated from Waseda University, ty,japa Japan, with a Bachelor degree in 1995 and a Master of Engineering degree in 1997 from Cornell University, USA. Mr. Oki has more than fifteen years of experience in steel fabrication and construction industry. Currently, Mr. Oki is the Manager of the Construction ti Mt Materials il & Business Development Department of JFE Steel Corporation Japan.
