Steel-reinforced concrete (SRC) columns have been widely used over the past few decades. However, very limited research has been conducted on the time-dependent behavior of these columns caused by creep and shrinkage under sustained loading. This paper presents the results of an experimental study of the long-term behavior of short SRC columns under sustained axial loading. Long-term axial deformations due to shrinkage and creep of the concrete were recorded. In analysis of the test results, time analysis of the SRC columns under sustained axial loads using the age-adjusted effective modulus method was proven to be suitable by employing the ACI 209 model for prediction of shrinkage and the CEB-FIP90 model for the prediction of creep. ?
