[en] This paper studies experimentally the behaviour of circular FRP-steel-confined columns subjected to reversed cyclic loads. The influence of main structural factors on the cyclic behaviour of the columns is discussed. Test results show the outstanding seismic performance of FRP-steel confined reinforced concrete (RC) and steel-reinforced concrete (SRC) column. The lateral confinement effectiveness of FRP materials is verified in the steel tube confined RC columns. A simplified finite element method (FEM) model supported by OpenSees is developed to simulate the experimental results of the test columns. Based on the proposed FEM model, a parametric analysis is conducted for investigating the effects of several main factors on the reversed cyclic behaviour of GFRP-steel confined RC columns. Based on the test and numerical analyses, the study discusses the influence of variables such as the lateral confinement on the plastic hinge region and peak drift ratio of the studied concrete columns under reversed cyclic loads. Results indicate that the lateral confinement significantly affects the height of plastic hinge region of circular confined columns without H-steel. Based on the analysies of test data from the study and literature, the paper suggests a simple model to predict the peak drift ratio of the confined RC columns.
