To study the mechanical behavior of high-strength concrete filled high-strength square steel tube (HCFHST) under pure bending load, six specimens with different steel ratio were tested. The corresponding nonlinear finite-element models were established to analyze the mechanical properties. The load-displacement curves obtained from the numerical analyses are consistent with the experimental results. In addition, the influences of different materials are analyzed in this paper. The moment-curvature relationship can be divided into three stages: elastic stage, yield stage and hardening stage. And the ultimate bearing capacity increased with the steel ratio, steel yield strength and concrete compressive strength. Moreover, the ultimate bearing capacity of the experiment and finite-element analysis (FEA) model is compared with the requirements of codes: AISC-LRFD (1999), AIJ (1997), EC4 (1994) and GB50936-2014 (2014). The test and FEA result were the most compatible to the calculated result of EC4 (1994). And find the results in this paper is the most compatible to the code EC4 (1994). © 2016 Elsevier Ltd
