As a typical compression member, the concrete-filled steel tube has been widely used in civil engineering structures. However, little research on recycled self-compacting concrete filled circular steel tubular (RSCCFCST) columns subjected to eccentric load was reported. In this study, 21 specimens were designed and experimental studies on the stress-strain relationship of were carried out to study the mechanical behaviors. Recycled coarse aggregate replacement ratio, concrete strength grade, length to diameter ratio and eccentric distance of specimens were considered as the main experimental parameters to carry out eccentric compression tests. The corresponding stress-strain relationship curves were used to analyze the influence of concerned parameters on eccentric load-bearing capacity of RSCCFCST columns. The experimental results show that the strain of the eccentric compression stress-strain curves increase with the increase of recycled coarse aggregate replacement ratio and concrete strength grade. With increase of eccentric distance, the ductility of specimens increases while the bearing capacity decreases. Moreover, a phenomenological model of RSCCFCST columns is proposed, which exhibits versatile ability to capture the process during loading. The present study is expected to further understanding the behaviors and to provide guidance of RSCCFCST columns in design and engineering applications.
