Improved Design-Oriented Confinement Models for FRP-Wrapped Concrete Cylinders based on Statistical Analyses
This paper introduces improved design-oriented confinement models for cylindrical concrete members wrapped with fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composites based on a rigorous statistical evaluation of a large database. As ...
Strengthening Slender Reinforced Concrete Columns Using High-Modulus Bonded Longitudinal Reinforcement for Buckling Control
(American Society of Civil Engineers, 2015-04)
This paper introduces a model for strengthening slender reinforced concrete columns. The proposed technique aims at controlling second-order lateral deflections using longitudinal high-modulus bonded reinforcement, thereby ...
Compressive Behaviour of Concrete Cylinders Reinforced with Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer Bars
(Canadian Society for Civil Engineering:, 2017-05-31)
Current design standards ignore any contribution of glass fiber reinforced polymer (GFRP) bars in concrete in a state of compression. This paper challenged this convention by testing 30 cylinders of 36 MPa concrete to ...
Short Concrete Columns Reinforced with GFRP Rebars under Eccentric Loading
(Canadian Society for Civil Engineering, 2017-05-31)
In this paper, the compressive performance of short concrete columns reinforced with glass fiber-reinforced polymer (GFRP) composite rebars is evaluated. A total of fourteen 500 mm long concrete specimens with square ...
Experimental Study of Rectangular RC Columns Strengthened with CFRP Composites under Eccentric Loading
(American Society of Civil Engineers, 2010-01-28)
This paper presents the results of experimental studies on reinforced concrete columns strengthened with CFRP composites under combination of axial load and bending moment. A total of seven large-scale specimens with ...
Strengthening Concrete Columns using NSM CFRP Laminates
(6th Asia-Pacific Conference on FRP in Structures, 2017-07-19)
In this paper, the performance of concrete columns strengthened with longitudinal near surface mounted (NSM) carbon fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP) composite laminates is evaluated. A total of fourteen medium-scale plain ...
