Loading Process Simulation of GFRP Tube Filled with Steel-Reinforced High-Strength Concrete Columns Subjected to Eccentric Compression
For the further study of bearing compressive capacity of GFRP tube filled with SHC（steel-reinforced high-strength concrete）columns subjected to eccentric compression, and analysis its whole bearing compressive process under eccentric compression. Based on the flat section assumption finite strip method, the calculating program of bearing eccentric compressive capacity of GFRP tube filled with SHC columns is proposed according to existing retrofit theory and related technical procedures. The relation curves of load-deformation is gotten using this calculating program, at the same time it can get the effect curves of concrete strength, slenderness ratio, eccentricity and containing bone rate to load-deformation. Calculations show that the ultimate bearing compressive capacity of composite column decreases with the increase of slenderness ratio, and elastic stage of component curve gradually shortens and stiffness gradually loses; The ultimate bearing compressive capacity of composite columns decreases with the increase of eccentricity; component ductility improves; the ultimate bearing compressive capacity of composite columns increases with the increase of concrete strength. The calculated results agree well with the experimental results and this study provides a basis for practical design.
