The aim of this study is to clarify the strength and the deformational ability of recycled concrete. It was clarified that the deformational behavior of recycled concrete filled steel tube (RCFT) was similar to that of normal concrete filled steel tube (CFT). It was shown that the stiffness of RCFT could be predicted approximately with consideration of the Young's modulus of recycled concrete which were lower than that of normal concrete. It was also shown that of the dilatancy in the elasto-plastic range, which is related to the Poisson's ratio, is important to predict the strength.
