    Abstract

    A large amount of construction materials are consumed by the construction industry
    annually. Production and transportation of these construction materials contribute significantly to Greenhouse
    Gas (GHG) emissions. Measures for lowering the negative influences on the environment can be
    achieved by reducing and reusing construction materials. Steel column-baseplate connections are one of
    the most important and commonly used structural elements in steel frames. This paper aims to investigate
    the demountability of steel column-baseplate connections under monotonic loading. The effects of material
    and geometric nonlinearities were included in the developed model. It is demonstrated that the developed
    finite element model can accurately predict the initial stiffness, ultimate bending moment capacity of
    steel column-baseplate connections. The validated finite element model is thereafter extended to examine
    the effects of various parameters on the behaviour of steel column-baseplate connections. The effects of
    these parameters on the demountability of steel column-baseplate connections are further studied.
