DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE EMBODIMENTS

Reference will now be made in detail to the present embodiments of the present invention, examples of which are illustrated in the accompanying drawings, wherein like reference numerals refer to the like elements throughout. The embodiments are described below in order to explain the present invention by referring to the figures.

FIG. 1 shows a composite concrete column according to a preferred embodiment of the present invention. Referring to FIG. 1, a composite concrete column of the present invention comprises concrete column portions 10 and 20 extending lengthwise, and an H-beam 30 connected between ends of the concrete column portions 10 and 20 to be exposed.

The concrete column portion 10 and 20 is a main body and preferably have a section of square, rectangle, circle or the like.

The concrete column portions comprise an upper concrete column portion 10 and a lower concrete column portion 20 so that an exposed portion 15 where the H-beam 30 is exposed is formed between the lower end of the upper concrete column portion 10 and the upper end of the lower concrete column portion 20. As described later, the end of crossbeam is connected to the exposed portion 15 so that the exposed portion 15 is located as high as a slab is formed.

According to the present embodiment, the H-beam 30 is connected with the concrete column portions 10 and 20 so that both ends of the H-beam 30 are embedded in the concrete column portions 10 and 20. That is, an upper end of the H-beam is embedded in the lower end of the upper concrete column portion 10, and lower end of the H-beam is embedded in the upper end of the lower concrete column portion 20. More preferably, a plurality of studs (not shown) with an embedded plate are formed on the side surface of embedded portion of the H-beam 30, which results in firm connection with the concrete column portion.

According to the present invention, the H-beam 30 of the exposed portion 15 is formed with a plurality of holes 30a and 30b which reinforcement bars for slab pass through. That is, the holes consist of first holes 30a which are formed on flanges 31 and 32 extending in parallel at both sides of the H-beam 30, and second holes 30b which are formed on a web 33 between the flanges 31 and 32.

The number of the holes 30a and 30b is not limited to the present embodiment and may be determined considering the size and required strength of the column, the crossbeam and the slab.

According to the present invention, the first and second holes 30a and 30b are formed at different height to prevent reinforcement bars for slab passing through the holes 30a and 30b from interfering with each other. Accordingly, the reinforcement bars for slab passing through the first holes 30a extend rectangular to the reinforcement bars passing through the second holes 30b.

The concrete column portions 10 and 20 and the H-beam 30 may be configured in various ways illustrated in FIG. 2 which is one of the modification.

A composite concrete column of the present embodiment comprises upper and lower concrete column portions 10′ and 20′ extending lengthwise, and an H-beam 30 connected between ends of the concrete column portions 10′ and 20′ to be exposed and having a plurality of holes 30a and 30b which the reinforcement bars for slab pass through.

Also, the composite concrete column further comprises a plurality of reinforcement rods 40 embedded in the concrete column portions 10′ and 20′ around the H-beam 30 to extend lengthwise. Here, the reinforcement rods 40 are installed at the position where the reinforcement bars for slab passing through the holes 30 and 30b do not interfere with the reinforcement rods 40.

The H-beam 30 has a plurality of brackets 42 at the exposed portion 15 between the concrete column portion 10′ and 20′ to connect the crossbeam. For example, the bracket 42 may be T-shaped steel member having fastening holes 42a that is welded to the side surface of the H-beam 30. However, the brackets are not limited to the present embodiment, and may be modified so as to connect ends of crossbeam by means of fasteners.

More preferably, upper ends of the concrete column portion 10′ and 20′ have a support portion 22 laterally extending to stably support the end of the crossbeam which is placed on the support portion 22.

Although the composite concrete column is illustrated in detail with reference to the drawings, but not limited thereto and may be configured to the embodiment disclosed in Korean Patent No. 0797194.

Now the construction method using the above composite concrete column will be described.

First, a composite concrete column is manufactured in the factory in advance, and then transferred and fixed to the ground at the lower end of the concrete column portion 20.

Subsequently, the end of a crossbeam is connected to the H-beam 30 at the exposed portion 15 of the composite concrete column. In the present invention, the crossbeam denotes an H-beam or a structure having an H-beam. More preferably, the crossbeam comprises the composite concrete crossbeam as shown in FIG. 3.

In a preferred embodiment, the composite concrete crossbeam comprises an H-beam 50, stirrup bars 51 installed at a predetermined interval along the H-beam 50, and a concrete member 52 embedding at least a portion of the H-beam 50.

The stirrup bars 51 make a compression force along the H-beam 50 to apply evenly through the section of the H-beam, and resist to a shear force applied in the direction rectangular to the H-beam. It should be understood that various kinds of stirrup bars may be adopted, not limited to the embodiment.

The concrete member 52 is formed integrally on the H-beam 50 lengthwise to embed at least a portion of the length of the H-beam. Preferably, the concrete member 52 embeds at least a part of the lower flange 53.

The concrete member 52 effectively resists to a bending force and a compression force together with the H-beam 50. Also, the concrete member 52 increases in the sectional area of the composite concrete column to thereby strengthen the resistance to external forces.

As shown in the drawing, both ends of the H-beam 50 are exposed out of the concrete member 52 so that the composite concrete crossbeam can be connected to the composite concrete column of the present invention. To do so, fastening holes 50a may be formed at the ends of the H-beam 50.

Preferably, the composite concrete crossbeam comprises extension/compression bars which resist to an extension force and a compression force applied to the composite concrete crossbeam. Preferably, the extension/compression bars comprise a plurality of embedded bars 54 embedded in the concrete member at the lower portion of the H-beam 50 in the lengthwise direction, and exposed bars 55 which are not embedded in the concrete member 52.

The exposed bars 55 will be embedded in the concrete member of slab together with other reinforcement bars for slab. Accordingly, it should be understood that the reinforcement bars for slab include the embedded bars 54 and the exposed bars 55 hereinafter.

Although the composite concrete crossbeam is illustrated in detail with reference to the drawings, but not limited thereto and may be configured to the embodiment disclosed in Korean Patent Nos. 0640250, 0761785 and 0761786.

The above-explained connecting method may be selectively applied to the flanges 31 and 32 and the web 33 of the H-beam 30. For example, the connection of the flanges 31 and 32 may be different from that of the web 33.

The present invention provides a pair of composite concrete columns that are connected with each other in the vertical direction at the exposed portion 15.

Referring to FIG. 19, a first H-beam 30′ formed at the lower portion of an upper first composite concrete column 100′ is welded to a second H-beam 30″ formed at the upper portion of an lower second composite concrete column 100″ to one piece of integral composite concrete column.

Preferably, the first H-beam 30′ has a plurality of holes 30a and 30b through which the reinforcement bars for slab pass.

In the case of the above configuration, the connection portion of the two H-beams 30′ and 30″ is the exposed portion to be connected with the crossbeam, while the concrete member of the first composite concrete column 100′ becomes an upper concrete column portion and the concrete member of the second composite concrete column 100″ becomes an lower concrete column portion.

The crossbeam may be connected to the exposed portion of the H-beam in the composite concrete column in the same manner as the previous embodiment, which will be omitted.

Alternatively, the first and second H-beams 30′ and 30″ of the first and second composite concrete column 100′ and 100″ may be coupled be means of plates or brackets.

FIG. 5 shows the composite concrete column 100 wherein four composite concrete crossbeam 200 are connected to the H-beam 30 of the same.

Preferably, the end of the concrete member 52 of the composite concrete crossbeam 200 is placed on the upper surface of the lower concrete column portion 20 or on the support portion 22 of FIG. 2 of the composite concrete column. The above configuration facilitates the connection of the composite concrete column and the crossbeam with structural stability.

Subsequently, reinforcement bars for slab and molds are installed on the crossbeam. FIGS. 6 and 7 show the state in which the reinforcement bars for slab are installed according to the present invention.

The reinforcement bars 60 and 62 for slab along the composite concrete crossbeam 200 pass through the holes 30a and 30b formed on the H-beam 30 of the composite concrete column. That is, a first reinforcement bars 60 along the composite concrete crossbeam 200 pass through the first holes 30a on the flanges 31 and 32 of the H-beam 30, and a second reinforcement bars 62 perpendicular to the first reinforcement bars 60 pass through the second holes 30b on the web 33 of the H-beam 30.

Since the first holes 30a are located at the height different from that of the second holes 30b, the first reinforcement bars 60 for slab do not interfere with the second reinforcement bars 62 for slab.

At the same time, a mold structure such as a deck plate 300 of FIG. 8 may be placed on the composite concrete crossbeams 200. Such an installation of deck plates 300 may be conducted according to Korean Patent No. 0761786, which will be omitted.

Although not shown in the drawing, the reinforcement bars may be installed on the deck plate 300 in various kinds of configuration. Such a configuration does not limited by the present invention.

Also, concrete is put on the mold with the reinforcement bars and cured to build a slab. FIG. 9 shows a slab built by the present invention.

The construction method of the present invention using the composite concrete column is also applied to side wall of the building.

That is, three composite concrete crossbeams 200 are connected to the composite concrete column at the side wall of the building in FIGS. 10 and 11. Here, first reinforcement bars 60′ for slab pass through holes formed on the flanges 31 and 32 of the H-beam 30 in the composite concrete column, and second reinforcement bars 62′ pass through holes formed on the web 33 of the H-beam 30.

The connection of the composite concrete column and the crossbeams of the present embodiment is the same as the previous embodiment, which will be omitted.
