This paper presents the buckling behaviour and design of axially loaded concrete filled steel elliptical hollow sections. The experimental investigation was conducted using normal and high strength concrete of 30, 60 and 100 MPa. The current study includes both the stub and slender column tests. Based on the existing design guidance in Eurocode 4 for composite columns, the proposed design equations were found to provide an accurate and consistent prediction of the cross section and buckling capacity of the composite concrete filled steel elliptical hollow sections in axial compression.
