"Concrete filled fiber tubes can be used to increase ductility and strength of a concrete member and self-consolidating concrete is an ideal material to use in practical applications of concrete-filled fiber tubular columns. However, the propensity of self-consolidating concrete to autogenous shrinkage could reduce the effectiveness of the concrete confinement. This research investigates the use of self-consolidating concrete in pre-cast FRP tubes and various methods of shrinkage reduction and compensation to increase the axial performance of said self-consolidating concrete-filled fiber tubes. Axial compression tests were performed under monotonic and cyclic conditions to determine the stress-strain relationship of the self-consolidating concrete filled fiber tubes. The test results obtained from the compression tests are presented and examined”--Abstract, page iv.
