This paper presents an experimental investigation carried out on concrete cylinders confined with fibre reinforced polymers (FRP), subjected to monotonic and cyclic loading. Carbon fibres (CFRP) were used as confining material for the concrete specimens. The failure mode, reinforcement ratio based on jacket thickness and type of loading are examined. The study shows that external confinement of concrete can enhance its strength and ductility as well as result in large energy absorption capacity. This has important safety implications, especially in regions with seismic activity.
