 Summary:
 Reinforced concrete columns are in common use in buildings, while CFT(Column Filled Tubes) columns are less used. Comparative analysis was done on a realmulti-story building. Reinforced concrete column was designed according to Eurocode 2,while CFT column was designed using simplified method defined in Eurocode 4. Benefits and shortcomings of CFT columns in comparison to reinforced concrete columns regarding dimensions of the cross-section, cost, construction time and simplicity were quantified by this analysis.
