Concrete Composite Columns: Behavior and Design focuses on confined concrete and establishes analytical methods for each composite column. The volume moves beyond existing resources to study the relationship between existing composite structures and design methods for the sectional form of concrete composite structure. Chapters cover the failure criteria of concrete, confined concrete types, models, including axial stress prediction, analysis oriented constitutive, and design-oriented constitutive models, the design and analysis of section form, double confined concrete, seismic behaviors of concrete composite columns, and the seismic design of concrete composite columns. This book offers a practical solution to students, researchers and engineers working with both steel and FRP confined concrete composite columns.
