Abstract


  • A hybrid fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP)-concrete-steel double-skin tubular column (DSTC) consists of an outer FRP tube and an inner steel tube, with the space in between filled with concrete. This paper presents results from the first ever experimental study on hybrid DSTCs with a large rupture strain (LRS) FRP tube, namely, polyethylene terephthalate (PET) FRP tube. The experimental program involved the testing of 12 hybrid DSTC specimens with or without additional concrete inside the inner steel tube. The test results confirmed the ample ductility of hybrid DSTCs with a PET-FRP tube despite the severe local buckling of the inner steel tube at large axial deformations. The test results also suggested that the diameter-to-thickness ratio of the inner steel tube is a more critical parameter in such DSTCs than in DSTCs with a glass, carbon or aramid FRP outer tube.
