This study presents the evaluations of seismic performance and displacement ductility for two types of RC columns: existing RC column without SFM (Super Flexibility Membrane) and CSF (RC columns strengthened with SFM). After they are analyzed by the experiment as well as FEM, crack patterns and load-displacement curve of CSF by the former are shown to similar to those of CSF by the latter. The flexural cracks are dominant in CSF, whereas shear cracks in CNF (existing RC column without SFM).
