Based on experimental investigation under low cyclic reversed loading, the seismic behaviors and seismic damage model for steel reinforced high strength and high performance concrete (SRHSHPC) composite frame columns are studied. Several existing seismic damage models are firstly presented and their characteristics are comparatively analyzed. From the test results of low cyclic reversed loading, the variation history of cumulative dissipated hysteretic energy of the SRHSHPC composite frame columns under different loading cycle levels is figured out, and the influence of axial compression ratio, shear span ratio, stirrup ratio and concrete strength on the cumulative dissipated hysteretic energy is also discussed. The damage index of the SRHSHPC composite frame columns is compared according to the existing seismic damage models, and the seismic damage model adapted for the SRHSHPC composite frame columns is established. According to the variation history of the damage index under different loading cycle levels, the rule of damage development for the SRHSHPC composite frame columns is proposed. The influence of axial compression ratio, shear span ratio, stirrup ratio and concrete strength on the damage development is also discussed. The results indicate that the seismic behaviors of the SRHSHPC composite frame column are outstanding, and the seismic damage model could give a quantitative description for damaging process of the samples, which is reference for establishing more rational damage criteria for the SRHSHPC earthquake-resistant composite structure.
