Concrete delays the steel tube’s local buckling, whereas the steel tube confines the concrete and therefore boosts the concrete’s strength. CFSTs are economical and enable rapid construction since the steel tube can serve as formwork and reinforcement towards the concrete fill, negating the requirement for either. The deformation capacity from the product is elevated through the combined action from the concrete fill using the thin, ductile steel tube. Concrete filled steel tubes (CFST) member have numerous advantages in contrast to the standard structural member made from steel or reinforced concrete. Among the primary advantages may be the interaction between your steel tube and concrete. The concrete fill considerably increases inelastic deformation capacity and also the compressive stiffness and cargo capacity from the CFST member. Concrete filled steel tubes are often employed for piers, posts, and caissons for deep foundations due to their large compressive stiffness and axial load capacity. Lately, other structural systems used CFST people for girders along with other people exposed to bending. Flexural behavior may be the primary design problem for these applications. In building construction concrete filled steel tubes are extremely broadly employed for posts in conjunction with steel or reinforced concrete beam. Within this thesis work an effort has been created to determine the flexural capacity of empty and concrete filled steel tubes for beams. Because it is prefabricated time consumption is going to be less in construction practice these types of confinement more ductility is anticipated that is very helpful in earthquake resistant structures. Within this work totally 12 examples were tested of that 3specimens were empty steel tubes and remaining 6 examples were concrete full of different connecting techniques. Load transporting capacity of CFST almost bending in comparison with empty steel tubes. An analytical model seemed to be ready to compare the experimental moment and deflection with analytical moment and deflection using finite element based software ANSYS. Analytical outcome was close to experimental results.
