Research on Seismic Behavior and Cost Estimation of a New Concrete Filled Steel Tube Frame Structure
A new concrete filled steel tube (CFT) frame structure was developed by using self-compacting concrete (SCC). Experimental work was done in order to investigate seismic behavior of the new CFT frame structure. The experiment result shows that sufficient deformation capacity is able to be obtained in PC bar jointed CFT column-beam joint specimens. Cost estimation and comparison result of the new CFT frame structure and steel frame structure system were also be described.
