Formatted abstract
It has been demonstrated that high-strength concrete (HSC) is able to improve the strength-to-weight ratio of
reinforced concrete columns and maximise the usable areas of tall buildings. However, closely spaced transverse
reinforcement needs to be installed to provide stronger confinement for averting brittle failure of HSC. To resolve the
problem, double-skinned concrete-filled-steel-tubular (CFST) columns have been advocated, which eliminates the steel
congestion problem for better concrete placing and reduces the concrete arching action thus providing a more uniform
confining pressure. Despite these advantages, a major shortcoming of double-skinned CFST columns is that imperfect
interface bonding occurs in the elastic stage that reduces elastic strength and stiffness. Thus, the authors proposed to
adopt external confinement to restrict the lateral dilation of the outer tube of double-skinned CFST columns. To verify
the effectiveness of the proposed external rings, a total of 20 double-skinned normal- and high-strength CFST columns
were tested. From the test results, it was observed that the stiffness, axial load-carrying capacity and ductility of ringconfined
double-skinned CFST columns were significantly higher than the unconfined columns.
