This study evaluated the ultimate strengths as well as the effect of the ultimate composite actions of concrete-filled steel composites under combined bending, shear, and axial forces. Efficiency against bending of these composites is due to the flange action of the peripheral steel plates. Such efficiency can be expected against shear that the steel periphery and in-filled concrete interact as if they were diagonal tension and compression members in truss frameworks, respectively.
