Application of Special Shaped Column Composed of Concrete-Filled Steel Tubes
Special-shaped column composed of concrete-filled steel tubes (SCFT) structure, a new type structure, is adopted to a residential building. This paper represents the design and analysis of this structure. 3D model of the structure is built by finite element procedure software and vibration property, static and seismic performance of the building are also analyzed to check the safety of the structure. At last, the vertical stiffener joint of SCFT structure is proposed and calculated. The application of SCFT for residential building represents that the SCFT is suitable for real constructions.
