Abstract

It has been required to decrease the construction cost of infrastructures. The application of spiral steel pipes to bridge piers is considered as one of the effective methods. Spiral steel pipes are relatively economical because they are produced in large quantities in factories. However roll forming processes of spiral steel pipes are different from those of bending roll pipes which are generally used as bridge piers so that seismic performance of spiral steel pipes may be different from that of bending roll pipes. Therefore it is very important to investigate the ultimate strength and the ductility of spiral steel pipes. In this study in order to grasp the elasto-plastic behavior of spiral steel pipes piers cyclic loading experiments with two specimens were conducted and the effect of radius thickness ratio parameter on the ultimate strength and the ductility was observed. Furthermore the experimental results were compared with the analysis results by the previous seismic evaluation methods.
