In the present study, the stress-stain behaviour of confined concrete made with nano-silica (nano-SiO2) were taken up. The stress-strain behaviour was studied for the M30 and M50 grades nano-silica (nano-SiO2) concrete mixes confined with steel rebars. The confinement was given in the form of steel hoops in the cylinders, 3 hoops (0.8%), 4 hoops (1.1%), 5 hoops (1.3%) and 6 hoops (1.6%). The addition of nano-silica (nano-SiO2) along with confinement of concrete with steel hoops enhanced the compressive strength, indicating further confinement effect in the concrete. It is observed that the addition of nano-silica (nano-SiO2) is helpful in lower confinements only. Beyond 1.1% confinement, doesn’t show any effect on compressive strengths. From the stress-strain behaviour of all types of concrete mixes, it is concluded that the ultimate load-carrying capacity and strains at peak stresses are more in nano-silica (nano-SiO2) concrete with steel hoops for mixes up to 1.1% confinement. The addition of nano-silica (nano-SiO2) to concrete has increased the ductility in both confined and unconfined states
