© 2018 Elsevier Ltd An analytical procedure for dynamic stability of CFST column accounting for the creep of concrete core is proposed. The long-term effect of creep of concrete core is formulated based on the creep model by the ACI 209 committee and the age-adjusted effective modulus method (AEMM). The equations of boundary frequencies accounting for the effects of concrete creep are derived by the Bolotin's theory and solved as a quadratic eigenvalue problem. The effectiveness of the proposed method and the characteristics of time-varying distribution of instability regions are numerically surveyed. It is shown that the CFST column becomes dynamically unstable even when the sum of the sustained static load and the amplitude of the dynamic excitation is much lower than the static instability load. It is also found that due to the time effects of concrete creep under the sustained static load, the same excitation, that cannot induce dynamic instability in the early stage of sustained loading, can induce the dynamic instability in a few days later. The critical amplitude and frequency of the dynamic excitation can decrease by 6% and 3% in 5 days, and 11% and 6% in 100 days.
