Abstract: The composite structural element under study is a carbon fiber wrapped, steel I section reinforced concrete column. The wrapped CFRP is under tension and reinforced concrete under radial compression. The aim of the research is to determine the behavior of the composite structural element under axial loads. The Stress-strain characteristics and load bearing capacity of control and CFRP wrapped tubular columns were determined experimentally. Further, Finite element analysis of steel, reinforced concrete and CFRP wrapped concrete columns sections, was conducted using ANSYS Workbench 15.0 software. The experimental and analytical results were compared.
