Abstract

In this paper, an advanced analytical model proposed and verified in a companion paper (Part I: Analytical model) is used to conduct parametric investigations of ductile partially‐encased composite beam‐columns. Particular attention is given to a new configuration of composite member developed and tested at Imperial College. A detailed account of the analytical results is given, and the most significant observations are highlighted and discussed. Quantitative assessments of plastic moment capacity, rotation and displacement ductility and plastic hinge length are undertaken. The implications of the main findings on the seismic design process are also presented. Finally, a procedure for ductility‐based design according to modern codes of practice is outlined.
