Concrete-filled single skin (CFT) and double skin tubular (CFDST) members have advantages over concrete-filled steel tubular (CFST) columns. These include high strength and bending stiffness, fire performance, and ease of construction. CFT columns are made from a single-skin outer jacket surrounding a concrete infill, whereas a CFDST column consists of two concentric steel tubes with concrete in-fill. Despite the advantages CFT and CFDST hold over more conventional tubular columns, these structural elements remain relatively unused, there is a lack of understanding concerning their behaviour, and design provisions are lacking.

Key Features

  • Gives up-to-date advances on single-skin and double-skin construction
  • Explains and illustrates foundational concepts, including confinement and buckling
  • Considers important failure modes and gives detailed photographic references
  • Presents an analysis of ultimate strength and covers governing failure modes
  • Offers design examples following North American, European and Australian codes


Civil and structural engineers; researchers and graduate students working on the behavior of concrete structures
