Dr. Tao Mu-Xuan has a very wide range of research interests in the field of steel-concrete composite structures. In particular, for the application of composite structures at the system level, Dr. Tao is carrying out intensive explorations in the aspects of fundamental research and key technology development. The research focus mainly includes the following three aspects:1. Mechanism and Design Method of Slab Composite Effect in Composite Structural SystemsThe slab composite effect is a mechanical behavior that can best reflect the intrinsic characteristics of composite structural systems. It is the result of the out-of-plane and in-plane coupling effect under combined vertical and lateral loads. Only by thoroughly understanding the complex mechanical mechanism of this effect, can it be possible to obtain the scientific design method of composite structural systems applied in seismic areas. The final goal of this research is to propose the seismic design method of composite frame beams.2. New High-Efficiency Numerical Models for Elaborate Simulation of Structural SystemsOne-dimensional and two-dimensional structural members are the two most widely used components in the structural system. Therefore, advances of the traditional one-dimensional fiber beam-column element and two-dimensional layered shell element to realize the elaborate simulations of a series of critical complex effects, such as shear lag, shear nonlinearity, bond slip, crack width, punching shear and shear sliding etc., will be helpful to develop more powerful high-performance numerical simulation technologies and software platforms for the structural system. The final goal of this study is to develop numerical simulate packages for nonlinear analysis of structural systems COMPONA-FIBER/SHELL.3. Performance Assessment of High-Performance Composite/Mixed Structural SystemsThere are many types of composite/mixed structural systems. In addition to the most commonly used composite frame and composite frame-concrete core tube structural systems in the engineering practice, there are also various innovative high-performance systems such as hybrid frame systems, gravity-lateral force separable systems, composite/mix systems using novel high-performance composite structural components, and composite/mix systems using energy dissipation components. In order to find reliable design control indices for these systems, it is necessary to find powerful comprehensive performance assessment technology of composite/mix structural systems. The final goal of this study is to find quantitative indices for comprehensive performance assessment of composite/mixed structural systems.
