Title: STRUCTURAL MATERIAL AND METHOD OF JOINING THE SAME
Abstract:
Two or more structural members (101, 102, 111, 112, 122) each of which comprises a hollow tube formed out of concrete or a material similar thereto and having grooves and ridges in and on the inner surface thereof are opposed to one another, and they are then joined together by injecting a filler into the hollows thereof and solidifying the filler. In the hollows of the structural members, reinforcing bars (103, 113, 123) are inserted as necessary, or steel frames and bag-like bodies (106, 115) are fixed therein via joint frames (100), and a filler is then placed in the resultant spaces. Two or more structural members can be also be connected together via joint frames. The joining of concrete beams with each other, or a concrete beam and a concrete post with each other can be done simply even by non-skilled workers, and, moreover, a stylish building structure can also be formed.
