AbstractResults of experimental tests are presented for twelve 'Sleeved Column' specimens. All the specimens had an outer sleeve and an inner core, both of rectangular cross section. Outer sleeve was 23 in. long and the inner core was 23.5 in., with axial load applied only to the core. There was a gap between the sleeve and the core for all specimens except for one which had zero gap. The parameters considered for the study were core thickness and gap. It was concluded from the study that the sleeved column system carries substantially more load than the conventional Euler's column. The stiffness of the core and the gap between the sleeve and the core affects the load carrying capacity of sleeved column system significantly. For the same core size, specimens with least gap carried more load when compared to other specimens with larger gaps.
