Analysis of concrete columns with high-performance concrete jackets and polymer wraps
Proceedings of the Institution of Civil Engineers: Structures and Buildings
Cross-sectional analyses of circular and square reinforced concrete (RC) columns strengthened with reactive powder concrete jacketing and fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) wrapping were undertaken. The stress block method was used to determine theoretical axial load-bending moment (AL-BM) interactions of the columns. These were then compared with experimental results and found to be in very good agreement. A parametric study was also undertaken to investigate the most important factors that influence the AL-BM capacity of circular and square strengthened columns. Finally, a group of theoretical AL-BM interactions for circular and square strengthened columns was produced. These can be used in a wide range of applications for strengthening RC columns with high-performance concrete jackets and FRP wraps.
