At present, the existing standards (AISC360-16, EN1994-1-1:2004, and JGJ138-2016) lack relevant provisions for steel-reinforced concrete (SRC) composite columns with high-strength steel. To investigate the axial compressive mechanical performance of short high-strength steel-reinforced concrete (HSSRC) columns, the axial load test was conducted on 12 short composite columns with high-strength steel and ordinary steel. The influences of steel strength, steel ratio, and the section form of steel on the failure modes, bearing capacity, and ductility of the specimens were studied. Afterward, the experimental data were compared with the existing calculation results. The results show: compared with the specimens with Q235 steel, the bearing capacity of the specimens with Q460 steel increases by 7.8–15.3%, the bearing capacity of the specimens with Q690 steel increases by 13.2–24.1%, but the ductility coefficient increases by 15.2–202.4%; with the increase of steel ratio, the bearing capacity and ductility of specimens are significantly improved. A change of the steel cross-section could influence the ductility of SRC columns more than their bearing capacity. Moreover, the calculation results show that present standards could not predict the bearing capacity of HSSRC columns. Therefore, a modified method for determining the effective strength of steel equipped in HSSRC columns was proposed. The results of the ABAQUS simulation also showed that the addition of steel fibers could significantly improve the bearing capacity of Q690 HSSRC columns. The research results provide a reference for engineering practices.

Abstract In the present investigation, an analysis of the fire resistance of the steel-reinforced concrete-filled steel tubular columns with circular cross-sections was carried out by means of numerical simulation. The development of the study was carried out by means of numerical simulation to predict the behavior of the column against fire. The results of the numerical model are validated by comparing the temperature levels obtained through experimental tests. From the results obtained, it is shown that the increase in the contact area between the steel and the concrete reduces the average temperature of the column, which implies a greater resistance to fire. The fire resistance of the columns with the steel profile designs are between 3.4 - 3.6 times higher compared to the column only made of concrete, which is an indication of the excellent performance of the steel-reinforced concrete-filled steel tubular columns with circular cross- sections columns. In general, the methodology proposed in this research allows the analysis of the thermal physical phenomena of the different columns used for the construction of buildings.
