The typical failure mode of the composite column was local failure mechanism as shown in Figure 3.
The composite column was divided into four parts outer steel tube, inner steel tube, outer concrete and inner concrete in order that every part would be conducted by elastoplastic analysis, respectively.
The cause of failure of the composite column, in which axial force was applied to the whole surface of section, was due to concrete crushing in the upper supporting zone (Fig 4).
Tapered concrete-filled steel composite columns can be used for high and low rise buildings because of their large load carrying capacity and high ductility.
