Abstract: Nowadays, recycled concrete becomes more popular as a kind of new material which utilizes the waste concrete with the significant advantages of environmental protection and economic benefit. Its members have inferior structural performances compared with normal concrete members. However, their performance can be improved by filling them in steel tubes. In this paper, some experimental testing are described on recycled aggregate concrete filled steel tubes (RACFST) and recycled aggregate concrete filled double skin tubes (RACFDST) subjected to compression. The influence of recycled aggregates replacement ratio on the behavior of such composite structure will be investigated. The load deflection relationships are discussed in terms of strength and ductility.
