Experimental Study on Compressive Bearing Capacity of High Strength Concrete-Filled Steel Tube Composite Columns
To study axial compressive strength of high strength concrete-filled steel tube composite columns, tests of 18 specimens were carried out. Parameters of the specimens were the confinement index of concrete-filled steel tube, the cubic strength and the stirrup characteristic value of concrete outer of steel tube. Test results show that the concrete-filled steel tube and the reinforced concrete deformed simultaneously in the axial direction before and at the peak value of axial compressive force; after failure of the reinforced concrete, the concrete-filled steel tube can still bear the axial load and deformation; the main influential factors of axial compressive capacity are confinement index, the cubic strength and the stirrup characteristic value of concrete outer of steel tube. The accuracy of the formula of axial compressive strength of composite columns provided by CECS 188:2005 is proved by the test results of this paper.
