In locations where the cost of concrete is relatively high or in situations where the weight of concrete members has to be kept to a minimum, it may be more economical to use hollow reinforced concrete vertic al members. Hollow reinforced concrete colun-ms with a low axial load, a moderate longitudinal steel percentage and a reasonably thick wall were found to perform in a ductile manner at the flexural strength, similar to solid columns. Hollow reinforced concrete columns with a high axial load, a high longitudinal steel percentage, and a thin wall were found, however, to behave in a brittle manner at the flexural strength, since the neutral axis is forced to occur away from the inside face of the tube towards the section centroid and, as a result, crushing of concrete occurs near the unconfined inside face of the section. If, however, a steel tube is placed near the inside face of a circular hollow column, the column can be expected not to fail in a brittle manner through the disintegration of the concrete in the compression zone. A design recommendation and example through the moment-curvature analysis program for curvature ductility are herein presented. A theoretical moment-curvature analysis for reinforced concrete columns, indicating the available flexural strength and ductility, can be conducted, providing that the stress-strain relation for the concrete and steel are known. In this paper, a unified stress-stain model for confined concrete by Mander is developed foi members with circular sections.
