A significant amount of research has been conducted worldwide on the behavior of composite systems in the past five decades. This resource provides a summary of the behavior and experimental, computational and analytical research on composite members, connections, and frames that are reported in detail in the literature. These published studies have been summarized with an emphasis on experimental setup and properties, analytical methods presented, and key results from the work. Also included are detailed summaries of various aspects of behavior.
