Abstract

This paper presents an experimental study on concrete filled tubular stub columns. The environment friendly seawater and sea sand concrete (SWSS) and high corrosion resistance materials (i.e., stainless steel (SS) and carbon or basalt fibre reinforced polymer (CFRP or BFRP)) were adopted to make the stub columns. An appropriate mixture was firstly developed for SWSSC and the material properties of SS, CFRP and BFRP were determined by tensile coupon test and disk-split test. A total of 12 SWSSC filled columns and 12 corresponding hollow sectional tubes were tested under axial compression. The structural behaviour of test specimens was discussed. Finally, current design methods were used to estimate the ultimate capacity of SWSSC filled SS, CFRP and BFRP tubular stub columns.
