Therefore, the self-stressing concrete-filled steel tubes (SSCFSTs) were proposed as they have higher axial strength than CFSTs.
This paper gives a theoretical model for obtaining the axial compressive capacity of FCFSTs, in which the effect of self-stressing was considered.
Since the concrete in the steel tube is under triaxial compression, the axial compressive strength of concrete [[sigma].sub.cl] which considered both the self-stressing and axial compression can be expressed as [23]
where [f.sub.ck] is the standard compressive strength of the concrete, or the lateral pressure of the concrete, [[sigma].sub.cr] the lateral stress of the concrete core caused by axial compression, [[sigma].sub.ss] the initial lateral stress caused by expansion of the self-stressing concrete, and k the lateral stress coefficient.
[[sigma]'.sub.st] is the hoop tensile stress of steel tube that caused by self-stressing and [f.sub.y] is the yield strength of the steel tube.
Parametric analysis was performed to investigate the effects of the number of FRP layers and the self-stressing on the axial compressive capacity.
Figure 3 plots the axial compressive capacity versus self-stressing level of the filled concrete.
Theoretical study was presented to predict the nominal axial compressive strength of FCFSTs, in which the effect of self-stressing concrete was considered.
Correlation is not necessarily causation, though - other factors associated with being Type A, like smoking and having high cholesterol, could be the key, rather than the Type A's self-stressing lifestyle.
Kikas and coworkers [5] studying the influence of OSA on the properties of self-stressing shale ash cement concluded that the concrete made with burnt shale possesses high strength, high frost resistance, and low permeability.
