Abstract: This paper presents the results of a recent experimental study aimed at investigating the performance of eccentrically-loaded long circular reinforced concrete (RC) columns strengthened with fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) jackets. Tests were conducted on eight un-strengthened RC columns and eight corresponding columns strengthened with FRP. The main variables explored in this test program include the slenderness ratio and the load eccentricity. The test results showed that FRP-strengthened long columns typically fail by buckling with excessive lateral deflections and with the FRP jacket remaining intact. Significant strength and ductility enhancements may still be expected but these improvements reduce with an increase in either the slenderness ratio or the load eccentricity.
