This is the second version of the dataset 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.

The Research Results Input Worksheet is a blank worksheet intended for use by other researchers to send the authors (Leon et al.) their experimental data to continue to populate the database using the same format so the data is easy to import.

The dissertation titled Numerical Modeling of Composite Systems: Composite CFT Connections and Composite Beams gives relevant information in Chapter 2.
