Seismic Performance of High Titanium Heavy Slag High Strength Concrete Columns


Article Preview

For expedite the development of high titanium heavy slag concrete, eight high titanium heavy slag high strength reinforced concrete (HTHS-HSRC) scale model column are studied. The eight HTHS-HSRC model columns are tested under reversed horizontal force. Primary experimental parameters include axial load ratio varying from 0.3 to 0.5, volumetric ratios of transverse reinforcement ranging from 1.38% to 1.56%, strength of high titanium heavy slag high strength concrete varying from 55.9 to 61.6 N/mm2 and configurations of transverse reinforcement. It is found from the test result that HTHS-HSRC model columns provides comparable seismic performance to those usually used reinforced concrete column in terms of member ductility, hysteretic and energy dissipation capacity. Primary Factors of Displacement Ductility of Model Columns are also discussed.
