Compressive behavior of large-scale hybrid FRP-concrete-steel double-skin tubular columns

Conference Paper


Abstract


  • Hybrid FRP-concrete-steel double-skin tubular columns (DSTCs) are a new form of hybrid structural members. A hybrid DTSC consists of an inner steel tube, an outer FRP tube and a concrete infill between them. Hybrid DSTCs possess many important advantages over conventional structural members, including their excellent corrosion resistance as well as excellent ductility and seismic resistance. A large amount of research has been conducted on hybrid DSTCs, but the existing experimental studies have been limited to the testing of small-scale columns. This paper presents preliminary results from the first series of large-scale axial compression tests on hybrid DSTCs, which forms part of a larger experimental study currently under way at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. These test results confirm the excellent axial compressive response of hybrid DSTCs as initially expected. © (2011) Trans Tech Publications.
