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 ...
Closed-Form Model and Parametric Study on Connection of Concrete-Filled FRP Tubes to Concrete Footings by Direct Embedment
(American Society of Civil Engineers, 2010-10-30)
Concrete-filled fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) tubes (CFFTs) have been introduced as a new system for piles, columns and poles. A simple moment connection based on direct embedment of the CFFT into concrete footings or ...
