When a load is applied to a both end fixed beam, the negative moment is approximately 1.5-2 times greater than the positive moment. The cross section of the center beam can resist efficiently with lesser moment of inertia than that of the end due to moment redistribution. Accordingly, reduction in the story height and amount of materials used can be expected. In this study, we developed a partially concrete-filled new type composite beam that efficiently resists the negative and positive
