Experimental Investigation on Rectangular Inclined Concrete-Filled Steel Tubular Stub Columns
In recent 10 years, inclined concrete-filled steel tubular (CFST) columns are applied for some real engineering projects in China. And so a total of 10 specimens were experimented to study the behaviors of the rectangular inclined CFST stub columns. The main parameters were the inclined angle (0 degree and 9 degree), the inclined orientation (major axis and minor axis) and with or without infilling concrete. Comparisons with predicted sectional strengths were made using the existing codes. The results clearly show that all the codes were conservative and available for predicting the capacities of the specimens.
