II: Cyclic Axial Compression Stress-Strain Model Abstract 1: A slowly growing number of studies have concentrated too much on investigating, but less on modelling the cyclic axial stress-strain response of concrete columns (RC) confined with fiber-reinforced polymer FRP sheets. Since the early 1990s, the largest amount of research, including both experimental and analytical studies, has been rising continuously, in contrast, on the monotonic axial stress-strain behavior of concrete columns externally jacketed with FRP composite wraps. However, most of the available literature on the behavior of FRP-confined RC columns has focused extensively on square and circular concrete columns that can be classified as small or medium-size. Also recently, a few experimental studies have been devoted to investigating the cyclic axial compression behavior of small-scale unreinforced (plain) rectangular concrete columns with smaller-cross sections. Therefore, a deep review indicates that there is a distinct lack of research on the axial stress-strain behavior of FRP-confined RC columns subjected to a cyclic axial compression loading. This is owing to the fact that the majority of the structural buildings columns (RC) are noncircular ,and it has been clearly demonstrated that the behavior of these columns mainly depends on several factors such as aspect ratio of cross-section,
