Experimental Behaviour of Concrete-Filled Rolled Rectangular Hollow-Section Columns

Tests were carried out on seven full-scale composite columns about 3 m long, representing a typical storey height in multistorey buildings. The columns were made of a concrete-filled rolled steel rectangular hollow section 120 x 80 x 5 RHS. The experimental results are presented here, and are compared against the predictions of a finite element numerical analysis, and also with the failure loads as predicted in accordance with BS 5400 for the design of composite bridges. The tentative conclusions and recommendations given are based on the small number of tests carried out. H. Shakir-Khalil and J. Zeghiche
