Brittle, semi-ductile and ductile stress–strain response curves are identified according to the level of confinement stiffness provided by the SRG jackets. A comprehensive experimental database of 80 SRG-confined columns is developed and used to assess the influence of key design parameters. The results are then used to propose new design-oriented models to predict the strength and ultimate strain of SRG confined concrete columns by taking into account the confinement stiffness of the jackets.
