Abstract: This paper presents a 3D FE model for FRP-confined circular concrete cylinders based on a plastic-damage constitutive model for concrete recently proposed by Yu et al. (2010b). This 3D model is capable of modeling deformation non-uniformity in the axial direction due to factors such as end restraints. Numerical results obtained using the FE model for FRP-confined cylinders with end restraints or with a vertical gap in the FRP jacket conform to expected trends although their quantitative accuracy awaits confirmation by laboratory tests. This FE model has the potential for extension to more general cases of FRP-confined concrete columns (e.g. rectangular concrete columns) and can provide a useful tool for the exploration of confinement mechanisms in the development of simple stress-strain models for design use.
