Concrete filled steel tubular column is currently being widely used in the construction of modern buildings and bridges. Concrete filled steel tubular column resisting the lateral force when suddenly earthquake occurs. On the other side, cost of concrete is attributed to the cost of its ingredients which is scarce and expensive, this leading to usage of economically alternative materials in its production. This requirement is drawn the attention of investigators to explore new replacements of ingredients of concrete. This paper deals with the behaviour and performance of partial and fully replaced GGBS filled steel tubular column under uniaxial loading condition. The present paper focuses on investigating characteristics of M40 grade concrete with partial replacement of cement with ground granulated blast furnace slag (GGBS) by replacing cement via 0%, 50%, 100% and alkaline liquids are used for the binding of materials. The alkaline liquids are Sodium hydroxide and sodium silicate. The external diameter of the steel tubular column is 100mm , thickness of the steel tube is 3.5mm and height of the steel tubular column is 600mm. Therefore the results revealed that in 50% replacement of cement by GGBS the load carrying is high and deflection is less when compare to 0% and 100% replacement.
