Subject: Re: [SEAINT-SEAOSC] Twisted column

Hi Drew,

Have you considered to make the column composite?  Either encases, which 
might be a bit more costly by having rebars, ties outside the steel column 
encasing it or by making it to be inside a CFT (concrete filled tube).  You 
 can cut the pipe in half, if needed put some shear studs in it where the 
pipe faces the web and put the two halfs outside your damaged column and 
fill it with concrete from the bottom.  The composite solution will be good 
 for the future also since the composite CTT with the old column at its 
core, can take future hits and not get too much damage.  The concrete 
inside will prevent local buckling of old column as well and will be able 
to transfer the load of the column even with the current damaged condition 
to the CFT column.  As you have mentioned, the twisting of the existing 
column is also of concern which can make the flexural torsional buckling a 
possibility for this open shape with relatively thin elements.   The 
problem I see with replacement is that first of all you need to support the 
 load during the removal and replacement process and that can be quite 
costly and time consuming , but, more importantly you need to redo the 
connections, including the top and base connection and the one in the 
middle, that also  can be quite costly in time, design work and money.
