Abstract
    This paper proposed an innovative RC column with encased prefabricated high-strength concrete filled steel tube core, and four RC columns with encased prefabricated high-strength CFST core and a RC control-column were tested under lateral low cyclic loading. All specimens were evaluated by the cracks developments, failure patterns, hysteretic behavior, skeleton curves, strength and stiffness degradation, ductility and energy dissipation capacity. The effects of stirrup ratio and welding studs of prefabricated CFST core were investigated in details. The experiment results indicated that compared with the RC control-column, the performances of RC columns with encased prefabricated high-strength CFST core, including the hysteretic behavior, strength degradation, ductility and energy dissipation, were significantly improved. Higher stirrup ratio of the RC column with encased prefabricated high-strength CFST core leaded to higher ductility and more satisfactory energy dissipation capacity, stiffness degradation. Studs could effectively combine prefabricated high-strength CFST core and surrounding concrete, which significantly increase the integrity of RC column with encased prefabricated high-strength CFST core. Based on the test results, a numerical model was established to further analyze the cyclic behavior of the test specimens, and the numerical results agreed well with the test results, which showed the feasibility for the further parametric study. Finally, on the basis of the plastic stress theory, a calculation model for seismic bending moment capacity of RC column with encased prefabricated high-strength CFST core was established, and the results obtained form the formulas showed good agreement with the experiments.
