19. Structural Retrofit of Reinforced Concrete Circular Columns using CFRP

AHMED HAIDER MOHIUDDIN AND NUR YAZDANI

Abstract


Fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composites have developed numerous applications in the field of Civil Engineering, mostly because of their beneficial properties like high strength-to-weight ratio and high corrosion resistance. This paper presents an easy and expedient finite element (FE) able to accurately estimate the axial load carrying capacity of reinforced concrete (RC) circular columns confined with externally bonded carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) sheets. The element is able to model collapse due to concrete crushing.
