Abstract: The thin walled steel tube filled with high strength concrete delivers the economies of a concrete column with the speed of construction and the constructability of a steel column resulting in significant economies in the overall cost of a building project. The use of an effective area to account for local buckling of the thin walled tubes has been verified by tests.
