Fiber reinforced plastics (FRP) has been widely used in structure reinforcement processing. It is a comparatively mature field in computational models of cylindrical axial compressive strength on FRP confined concrete. In this paper, we conduct a possessive analysis on the axial compressive property that is based on the cylindrical stress model of FRP confined concrete, considering the difference among square column section, rectangular column and cylindrical column. Meanwhile, based on cross-sectional area and moment of inertia equivalent principles, we propose an equivalent diameter formula for converting rectangular column section into cylindrical column section. We also introduce sectional influence coefficients to modify ultimate strength and establish a model of ultimate strength for FRP confined concrete. Furthermore, we use the existing experimental data to test the validity and feasibility of the model. Experimental Results of the computational model are quite coincident and consistent with the tests. Computational model can reflect the true characteristics of FRP confined concrete. Therefore, the models proposed in this paper are significant in the practice of construction project.
