Abstract

An experimental investigation on aluminum hollow section tubes is presented in this paper. Axial compression tests were conducted to investigate the effect of depth to thickness ratio (D/t) and length to depth ratio (L/D) on the composite aluminum tubes which were filled with self-compacting concrete (SCC). The behavior, compatibility and strength limits were studied. An M25 grade of concrete was used. Tubes were 6063-T6 aluminum heat treated alloy extrusions with 214MPa yield strength. The depth to thickness ratio for the tubes ranged from 12 to 33.3. Length to depth ratio (L/D) varied from 3 to 10 to include all modes of failure. The column strength vs. load axial shortening graphs were plotted and failure modes were presented. Results have shown that combination of self-compacting concrete and Aluminum tubes is a good choice for construction and can withstand a considerable amount of load.
