This paper presents a numerical finite element model (FEM) investigation on the overall buckling behaviour of hot-rolled (HR), submerged arc welded (SAW) and high-frequency welded (HFW) steel circular columns under axial compression. Three dimensional FEM of circular hollow sections were developed using shell elements considering material nonlinearities, geometric imperfections and residual stress. The established FEM was used to simulate experimental studies conducted by past researchers. Good agreement has been found between numerical analysis and past researchers results, which has validated the reasonability of the FEM to carry out further investigation. Based on the validated FEM, numerical analysis incorporating 180 numerical generated HR, SAW and HFW steel circular columns with various section sizes and slenderness were carried out. The numerical analysis results were compared with the existing column design curves in Chinese, European and American codes. The numerical results showed that the design resistances for hot-rolled and welded steel circular columns calculated based on design curve a in both GB 50017-2003 and Eurocode 3 and the design formula in ANSI/AISC 360-2016 should be accepted. In addition, to further improve the design efficiency, new column design curves for hot-rolled and welded steel circular columns were recommended based on the expressions in GB 50017-2003 and Eurocode 3.
