The finite element software ABAQUS was used to analyze 22 high strength concrete-filled square high strength tubular short columns with inner I-shaped CFRP, all analysis results based on the finite element analysis data, six characteristic points were defined in the load-longitudinal strain curve of composite columns. The shared load of core concrete, square steel tube and inner I-shaped CFRP at different height sections of typical specimen corresponding to each characteristic point were analyzed and the cooperative work behavior of inner I-shaped CFRP, square steel tube and core concrete was analyzed. The results show that the existence of the inner I-shaped CFRP can effectively improve the ultimate bearing capacity composite columns, the middle region I-shaped CFRP sharing more longitudinal load than the end region CFRP and the shared load of concrete at the end region section is bigger than that of middle region section, before the CFRP brittle failure. The longitudinal load of square steel tube does not change with the change of the cross-section height.
