Paper Title:
Compression Tests on Large-Scale Concrete-Filled GFRP Tubes
  Abstract

To enable reliable prediction of the stress-strain behaviour of GFRP-confined concrete, the mechanical properties of GFRP tube needs to be properly understood and modelled. This paper presents test results of an experimental investigation carried out on 400-mm-diameter and 800-mm-height concrete-filled fiber reinforced polymer tubes. A total of four GFRP-confined concrete columns were subjected to concentric compression to identify the properties of GFRP tube. The performance of GFRP tubes in the tests were compared with the calculation results based on the classical lamination theory. In addition, more in-depth interpretations of the test results and further tests need to be refined in future tests to better capture the properties of the GFRP tube.
