Bond Stress in Concrete Pilled Steel Tubular Column ;;;
CFT column has excellent structural properties due to the composite action between concrete and steel tube. The bond behavior between the constituent elements has to be found for analyzing the behavior of CFT column. A new model is necessary because most of existing models for bond stress-slip relationship of the deformed bar cannot be applied to the CFT column. Therefore, the objective of this research is to develop a new model related to the bond behavior of CFT column considering the relation between bond stress and vertical stress, and the distribution of lateral stress under the confinement created by steel casing. From equilibrium condition, the formula for relationship between bond stress and vertical stress is derived, and the relationship for the lateral stresses of the CFT column section is obtained by an Airy stress function. The experiments are performed for five CFT column specimens axially loading on concrete alone. The relation between bond strength and lateral stress is investigated from the regression analysis using the measured strains. Finally a new bond strength model is proposed, which is able to predict the relationship for the stress of each direction of CFT column loading on concrete.
