Based on the plastic-damage constitutive model of concrete and elastic-plastic mixed strengthen constitutive model of steel material, the finite element software ABAQUS was used to build an elaborate 3D finite element (FE) solid model and perform pseudo-static analysis of terminal stirrup-confined concrete-filled rectangular steel tubular columns (SCFT) in this study. The FE model considers the confinement effect of both the steel tube and the stirrups exerting on the core concrete and the cumulative damage effect due to the horizontal cyclic load. Good agreement was achieved between the FE results and the existing quasi-static experimental results regarding to the load-displacement hysteret..
