This paper aims to explore the behaviour of substandard reinforced concrete (RC) columns confined with Steel-Reinforced Grout (SRG) jackets under monotonically increasing uniaxial compression. A total of 24 specimens of short RC columns of square cross section were designed to fail due to longitudinal reinforcement buckling. Single-layered SRG jackets were applied to 18 of these specimens, whereas the rest served for control without SRG jackets. Parameters of this investigation were the type and density of the steel fabric as well as the corner radius of the cross section. The employed SRG jacketing managed to increase the strength and strain capacity and postpone the buckling of the longitudinal steel bars to occur at higher compressive strain level. Confinement effectiveness with respect to the lateral confining pressure exerted by the used SRG jacketing is discussed along with the observed mode of failure.
