Abstract: This paper presents results of experimental investigation on the behaviour of axially loaded capsule shaped columns that have been strengthened with Glass Fibre Reinforced polymer and Carbon Fibre Reinforced Polymer with different wrapping patterns. Twelve capsule shaped columns were casted and tested under axial compression. One set of columns have been made with aspect ratio 2.53and with two different slenderness ratios. The second set of columns has been made with aspect ratio 2.1and with two different slenderness ratios. Eight out of twelve columns were confined with one layer and two layers of GFRP and CFRP wrap patterns. Based on the axial compression testing the columns it can be concluded that the lower the slenderness ratio and higher the no of layers and aspect ratio obtained the more strength and ductility.
