In the present experimental investigation, polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plastic pour-in form (PPF) was used in three low-cost composite systems for concrete construction. It included concrete-filled tubular plastic forms (CPPF), steel-reinforced concrete-filled tubular plastic (CPPF-SC and CPPF-Re), and welded wire fabric reinforced concrete-filled tubular plastic (CPPF-WM). The core was laboratory mixed concrete with an average 28-day compressive strength of 31.3 MPa. The performance of the three systems was compared with the corresponding pure concrete (PC), and reinforced concrete (RC) specimens, by testing 16 slender specimens with unequal end restraint-conditions. The analyzed parameters were the tube thickness and diameter, the amount and yield strength of longitudinal reinforcement, slenderness ratio and the rotation of the upper loading steel platen. The test results show that using PPF a hinge was formed and the mode of failure changed from brittle shear for RC specimens to ductile beam failure mode for CPPF with compression softening. The extent of enhancement in strength and ductility depends on the type of composite specimen.

Abstract The behavior of slender concrete columns encased in a thin, flexible plastic pour-in form under increasing axial load was evaluated experimentally, by testing two groups of columns. Group one included seven unconfined concrete specimens and group two included nine steel-fibered concrete specimens with or without the plastic pour-in form. Different end-restraint conditions were used at the top and bottom ends of the columns. The main variables of the research included plastic tube geomet...

Abstract The use of plastic tube to encase cementitious composite materials like concrete is reviewed. The polymer plastic tube has several roles in the composite system and is a viable alternative for steel tube in encasing concrete with durability, environmental and economic advantages. The composite system is of particular interest in infrastructure construction applications encountered in marine and saline aggressive environments, where the plastic shell acts as a barrier to prevent the ingr...

Abstract This paper presents a new composite confinement system of FRP wrap and PVC tube with and without an impact absorption medium (compressible foam) in between. The compressive behavior of the proposed FRP-confined concrete filled PVC tube (CCFPT) was investigated and compared with those of the concrete filled PVC tube (CFPT) and FRP-wrapped (FW) concrete cylinder. The effect of compressible foam on the post-peak behavior of the CCFPT specimen was explored. The applicability of seven existi...

Abstract Recently, polyvinyl chloride (PVC) has been used as a stay-in-place (SIP) formwork because of its lower cost compared to other materials, durability, and ease to assemble. The PVC SIP formwork used here consists of interconnected elements; panels and connectors that serve as permanent formwork for the concrete walls. In this paper, the behaviour of the PVC encased reinforced concrete walls tested under eccentric compression loading was investigated. The variables were the type of the sp...

Abstract This paper presents the experimental and numerical investigations on steel–concrete–PVC SHS joints under axial compression, in which PVC pipes were used as the inner tube of chord member and SHS steel tubes were used as the outer tube of chord member. A total of 22 joints with different brace to chord width ratio ( β ), hollow ratio of chord ( φ ) and shapes of PVC inner tube of chord were tested, in which two traditional hollow joints and two grouted joints were tested for comparison. ...

Abstract The post-fire behaviour of slender reinforced concrete columns confined by circular steel tubes is investigated experimentally and numerically in this paper. Experiments were performed firstly to explore the fundamental behaviour of steel tube confined reinforced concrete (STCRC) slender columns after exposure to the ISO 834 standard fire, including the cooling phase. Temperature distributions, load versus lateral displacement curves, strains in the steel tube and failure modes were obt...

The purpose of this project is to test the effectiveness of using polyvinyl chloride (PVC) structural angles to increase the capacity of reinforced concrete (RC) beams. Two ½-scale beams with different reinforcement configurations were loaded to approximately twice the yield displacement, unloaded, and subsequently repaired and reloaded to failure. Results indicate that the PVC attachments increased the capacity of the beams by 10-15%. While the increase in strength was modest, it may be suffici...

The effects of natural and artificial weathering on mechanical properties of Chlorinated Polyvinyl Chloride (CPVC) pipe material are investigated. Tensile specimens, prepared from locally manufactured CPVC commercial pipes (4-in Schedule 80) were exposed for periods ranging from 2 weeks to 18 months in the harsh weather conditions of Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. The accelerated artificial weathering was carried out in the Q- Sun Xe-3-HS Xenon Test Chambers for periods ranging from 100 to 3000 hours. S...

Abstract The axial compressive behavior of concrete-filled plastic tube (CFPT) with five different cement–admixture combinations were examined. A commercially available modified polycarboxylate superplasticizer used at five different concentrations. The plastic tube was an un-plasticized polyvinyl chloride (uPVC) made up of three layers: a blue layer sandwiched between two white layers to achieve solid wall construction. Test results showed that the strength of the CFPT specimens influenced by t...

In order to study the compression behavior of rectangular steel reinforced concrete columns with built-in steel tubes under different eccentric loads, three 1/10 scale specimens were designed and monotonic loading tests were carried out on them. The dimensions, steel bars and steel tube of the three specimens were the same except for the location of the loading point. The eccentricity ratios of the three specimens were 0, 0.25 and 0.5, respectively. The failure modes, load-bearing capacity and d...

Concrete is a multi-phase complex composite based on cement. The post-peak behavior of concrete is unpredictable and influences the overall performance of the concrete. Engineering plastics used in the present study as a external shell to increase the post-peak deformations of concrete cylinders. The applicability and efficiency of the proposed external plastic shell for concrete cylinders jacketing evaluated experimentally. The protective shell slipped on the concrete cylinders after the curing...

The main purpose of the current study was to formulate an empirical expression for predicting the axial compression capacity and axial strain of concrete-filled plastic tubular specimens (CFPT) using the artificial neural network (ANN). A total of seventy-two experimental test data of CFPT and unconfined concrete were used for training, testing, and validating the ANN models. The ANN axial strength and strain predictions were compared with the experimental data and predictions from several exist...
