This paper presents an extensive review of the experimental studies pertaining to pultruded and pullwound FRP tubular members, particularly in the last decade, where there have been developments of connections related to FRP tubular members. The scope of the experimental studies discussed is limited to member, connection, and full-scale frame behaviour. Documented failure modes, results and conclusions from published works have been discussed and tabulated for comparison. A summary and recommendations for future research are presented at the end of the review.
