Abstract: Nanomaterials have been used in improving the performance of construction materials due to their compacting micro-structure effect and accelerating cement hydration reaction. Considering the brittle characteristic of fiber reinforced polymer (termed as FRP) tube encased concrete and inferior properties of recycled concrete, nanoparticles were used in FRP tube encased recycled aggregate concrete. The axial compressive performance of FRP tube used in recycled concrete treated with nanoparticles strengthening, termed as FRPNPRC, were investigated by axial compression experiments and theoretical analysis. Five experimental variables were considered including (1) the dosages and (2) varieties of nanoparticles (i.e. 1% and 2% of nanoSiO2, 1% and 2% of nanoCaCO3), (3) replacement ratios of recycled coarse aggregates (termed as RCAs) (0%, 50%, 70% and 100%) the RCAs were mainly produced from the waste cracked bricks, (4) the number of glass FRP (GFRP) tube layers (2, 4 and 6-layer) and (5) the mixing methods of concrete. Results indicate that the combination of FRP confinement and nanoparticle modification in recycled concrete exhibited up to 76.2% increase in compressive strength and 7.62 times ductility improvement. Furthermore, a design-oriented stressestrain model on the basis of the ultimate condition analysis were executed to evaluate the stressestrain property of this strengthened component.
