The fixed-ended boundary condition was simulated by arresting all degrees of freedom at unloaded end.
For this reason, specimens of isolated T-joists are assessed, with the different boundary conditions of usual modeling in structure analysis (simply supported and fixed-ended).
Simply supported models are from (A1) to (A6) specimens, and fixed-ended joists models are presented in (B1) to (B6) specimens.
Fixed-ended damaged T-joist without repair ((B2) specimen) support the loads established by the standard with a safety coefficient of 1.93, almost double of the standard load (dead loads + live loads).
The boundary conditions in the cases of fixed-ended T-joists are theoretical.
