Behaviour of square concrete filled FRP tube columns under concentric, uniaxial eccentric, biaxial eccentric and four-point bending loads
This study investigated the behaviour of short square concrete filled fibre reinforced polymer tube specimens under concentric, uniaxial eccentric, biaxial eccentric and four-point bending loads. Seven concrete filled glass fibre reinforced polymer (GFRP) tube specimens (GFRP-CFFT) and seven traditional steel bar reinforced concrete (steel-RC) specimens of 200 mm x 200 mm cross-section were tested. The GFRP-CFFT specimens obtained a larger P-M interaction surface (higher maximum axial loads and higher bending moments) than the steel-RC specimens. In addition, the GFRP-CFFT specimens exhibited a lower average reduction in ductility under eccentric axial loads than the steel-RC specimens.
