Experimental Research on Four-Tube Concrete-Filled Steel Tubular Laced Columns
By means of axial compressive and eccentric compressive tests of four Four-tube Concrete-filled Steel Tubular Laced Columns, to research the mechanical properties and failure modes of this structural without yield point. Research shows that, the failure modes of this model, as well as axial compressive short columns, have the same trend of oblique shear failure, and presenting overall bending failure under eccentric compression. The linear eccentricity takes a biggish influence on mechanical properties of laced columns.
