AbstractThe casting of concrete in concrete-filled steel tube (CFST) can, via the confinement effect of the steel tube, significantly increase the ductility of the concrete and, in the case of high-strength concrete (HSC), alleviate the shortfall in ductility of the HSC. This kind of structure is gaining popularity but its behaviour is quite complicated. In an axially loaded circular CFST column, the confinement is uniform and equi-biaxial (isotropic within the cross-section). But, when the circular CFST column is under eccentric load, the confinement becomes non-uniform and anisotropic. Such complicated confinement effect is not easy to analyse and for such analysis, a rigorous finite element (FE) method is generally needed. In this paper, a new FE model considering the lateral strain-axial strain relation of the confined concrete covering the full range from the initial elastic stage to the inelastic stage is developed for the analysis of circular CFST columns under eccentric load. The FE model is used to analyse a total of 95 CFST specimens tested by other researchers and the numerical results are compared to the published test results for verification.
