|Abstract:||A large experimental database that consists of 976 test results was used to investigate and quantify the factors that influence the compressive behavior of FRP-confined high-strength concrete (HSC). Analysis results of the database indicates that the confinement requirement increases significantly with an increase in concrete strength, which in turn adversely affects the observed strength enhancement through confinement. In addition, it was also observed that the hoop rupture strain of the FRP shell decreases as the concrete strength increases. A number of existing stress-strain models developed for FRP-confined HSC were assessed using the database. A close examination of the results of the model assessment has led to a number of important conclusions regarding the strengths and weaknesses of existing stress-strain models. Finally, a new design-oriented model for FRP-confined HSC that was developed on the basis of the database summarized in the paper is presented.|
