Research on Bearing Capacity of Short Concrete Filled Double Skin Steel Tubes Columns under Axial Compression
The use of steel tube confined concrete columns has been the interests of many structural engineers. For investigation of the axially loading capacity of short concrete filled double skin tubes (CFDST) columns, axial compression loading experiments were carried on 9 short CFDST column samples. According to experimental results and with numerical analysis, an ultimate load estimation equation of CFDST column with one correction parameter is presented, the linear relation between the parameter and the inner-to-outer diameters ratio Di/Do is given out. The ultimate load estimation equation is validated by the test results of short CFDST column samples.
