AXIAL LOAD TESTS OF CONCRETE COMPRESSION MEMBERS WITH HIGH STRENGTH SPIRAL REINFORCEMENT

Axial load tests were performed to evaluate the confinement effectiveness of high strength spiral reinforcement in concrete compression members. The tests included 24 and 14 in. diameter circular cross section compression members with spiral nominal yield strength that ranged from 78 to 140 ksi. It was found that while spiral steel stresses in excess of 60 ksi are achieved, the nominal strength of the spiral may not be achieved.
