Paper Title:
Test Study on the Rigidity Degradation and Energy Dissipation of High-Strength Reinforced Concrete Columns with Central Reinforcement
  Abstract

Based on the pseudo-static test of 6 high-strength RC columns with central reinforcement skeletons, this paper studied their hysterisis performance, degradation of strength and rigidity, and energy dissipation capacity, with the affecting factors analyzed. The result shows that the central reinforcement skeletons can compensate for the low plasticity and brittle failure susceptibility of high-strength concrete so that all the specimens have stable strength, slow rigidity degradation and high energy dissipation capacity at later stage of loading; the larger the core areas the higher the strengths and ductility of the specimens, but slightly faster the degradation of strength and energy dissipation capacity as compared with the specimens with smaller core areas; the spacing of ties, longitudinal reinforcement ratio of core area both influence the strength degradation and energy dissipation capacity of the specimens, but they have little effect on their strengths.
