Analysis on Bearing Capacity of Solid Multibarrel Tube-Confined Concrete Short Columns (CHS Inner and SHS Outer) under Axial Compressive Load
By introducing the reduction coefficient of concrete strength and the equivalent restriction reduction coefficient,the non-uniform confinement force of square steel tube to its core concrete is turned to that of equivalent circular steel tube. Then the ultimate load calculation formula for the solid multibarrel tube-confined concrete short columns (CHS inner and SHS outer) is derived based on the Unified Strength Theory(UST),in which the double restriction effect and the decrease of longitudinal stress because of the hoop tensile tension are considered. The influence of intermediate principal stress on the ultimate load is studied and the failure mechanism is discussed. The applicability of the formulas is testified and the results show that the formulas have significance in exerting material potential.
