Title: Confined Concrete in Concrete-Filled Steel Tubular Columns
Author(s): K. Sakino
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 267-288
Keywords: concrete-filled steel tubular column; confined concrete; moment-curvature analysis; ultimate moment
Abstract:It has been widely known that concrete filled steel tubular (CFT) columns have much higher strength and deformation capacities than common reinforced concrete (RC) columns because of beneficent interactive confinement effect between the filled concrete and the steel tube. The confinement effect by steel tube furthermore contributes to improving ductility of high-strength concrete, and enables application of the CFT columns in high-rise buildings located on seismic regions. This paper describes the axial and the flexural behaviors of CFT columns with circular and square sections based on many experimental researches conducted in Japan. The emphasis of this paper will be placed on the stress-strain curve models for concrete in CFT columns, which play the fundamental role in assessing both of the axial and the flexural behaviors of the CFT columns.
