Abstract

High strength concrete-filled steel tube (CFST) columns have been adopted in many constructions requiring great load-carrying capacities, large floorplans, cost-effective and time-saving solutions such as modern skyscrapers or high-rise buildings, but their performance is still insufficiently understood due to the lack of experimental investigations and design specifications. The test program in this study consists of eight stub square CFST columns fabricated from high strength materials and slender sections which are beyond the permitted limits specified by many current design provisions. The failure patterns, load and moment resistances, load-mid-height deflection and load-axial strain res..
