Recently, the use of composite structures composed of steel plate and in filled concrete has become increasingly popular in Civil engineering structures. This is because of their excellent earthquake resistant properties such as energy absorption capacity. In the present investigation, an experimental study has been carried out. The main objective of this study is to find out the ultimate moment carrying capacity of concrete filled steel box members (CFSB).
