This data set was the first step in the development of a robust analytical model for connections between concrete filled tube members. Appendix A describes the range of variables and significant observations from one hundred and thirty-five tests found in the open literature. This data set (a) provides the starting point for a future robust calibration and verification database for composite connection studies, and (b) served as the basis for a number of the modeling decisions made in the second part of the research.
