This paper presents an analytical model to construct the interaction diagrams (normal force and moment) for the RC column strengthened using the steel jacket technique. The proposed model is defined using the strain distribution block by determining the location of the neutral axis in the concrete section. The proposed analytical formulation is verified by experimental results performed by previous researches and numerical models using the nonlinear program ANSYS. The factors affecting the capacity of the strengthened column are taken into consideration, such as the amount of loads resisted by the steel cage, steel strips spacing, and the effect of concrete confinement. The results of the proposed model are in good agreement with the results from the experimental and numerical work used in verification. A practical design formula has been presented for strengthened columns.
