Abstract     [Full Text]
    An experimental study was conducted to investigate the behavior of eccentric lightweight aggregate concrete-encased composite columns. This study aims at verifying the validity of such type of concrete in composite construction and checking the adequacy of the AISC-LRFD and the British Bridge Code BS 5400 specifications in predicting the column strength. Sixteen full-scale pin ended columns subjected to uniaxial bending about the major axis in symmetrical single curvature were tested.
 
Key Words
    columns; composite columns; encased columns; lightweight concrete.
