Preload in a cast-in-situ concrete-filled steel tube (CFST) structure is an important parameter that has been studied and considered in design and construction. However, the impact of a preload on fire resistance of CFST has not been taken into account in the existing design method of CFST under fire. In this paper, twelve CFST columns with and without preload in the steel tubes are experimentally studied to investigate their heating process, failure modes, thermal and structural responses. The test results show that preload of the steel tube has significant impact on the fire resistance of some of the columns. Further investigations on this important observation will be done numerically in a companion paper [24] to carry out a more comprehensive parametric study.
