Data for: Ultra-high strength circular short CFST columns: Axisymmetric analysis, behaviour and design
The Python script is given for the simulation of ultra-high strength circular CFST short columns under axial compression. The script can be run by selecting File<<Run Script. The file menu is located in the top left corner in Abaqus. The output of the script is stored in C:/MyResults. The script automatically creates the MyResults folder in C drive. For the verification of the columns, Axisymmetric.py and Axisymmetric.txt files can be used. To run this script, both files need to be stored in the Abaqus working directory (C:/Temp). For the parametric study, ParametricStudy.py and ParametricStudy.txt need to be run. The script needs to be run in Abaqus 2016. The script may give the error message if it is run in the different version. All numerical results are provided in the excel format. The Matlab code for the design standards is given. For Table 4 Matlab code, the input file name is changed from Input1 to Input.
