A New Method to Assess Ductility of CFT Box Columns with Binding Bars under Axial Compression
A new method based on material properties instead of experimental data was proposed to assess the ductility of concrete-filled steel box columns with binding bars and those without binding bars. Comparison between ductility coefficients based on experimental data and the calculated values by the proposed method shows good agreement.
