The utilisation of beam to concrete-filled tubular (CFT) column bolted construction remains limited due to the severe slippage of bolts, column surface deformation and low moment-resisting capacity. This study proposes a novel blind bolt, known as the TubeBolt, for beam to CFT column connections. Ten pull-out test specimens were evaluated under tensile monotonic loading. Bolt type, bolt diameter, end anchor member, hollow tube wall thickness and bolt hole diameter were varied for the test. The failure modes, anchorage performance, load-carrying capacity, strength, slippage and elongation of the bolts were analysed. The behaviour of the TubeBolt specimens was compared with that of the Extended Hollo-bolt specimens under the same condition. Experimental results indicated that the novel TubeBolt in concrete-filled tubes exhibited excellent anchorage performance, higher strength and less slip and elongation until the failure state was reached.
