This paper presents an experimental study undertaken to investigate the seismic behavior of square and rectangular RC columns confined with FRP or strengthened with FRP wraps and longitudinal steel profiles. Test results aim to explore the influence on the column performance of relevant parameters, such as: concrete strength, longitudinal steel reinforcement of the member (smooth or deformed rebars), type of strengthening system (FRP confinement w/ or w/o steel profiles); axial load levels; number of FRP layers used for columns jacketing. In particular, results form tests on rectangular columns are reported herein.

Abstract

This paper presents an experimental study undertaken to investigate the seismic behavior of square and rectangular RC columns confined with FRP or strengthened with FRP wraps and longitudinal steel profiles. Test results aim to explore the influence on the column performance of relevant parameters, such as: concrete strength, longitudinal steel reinforcement of the member (smooth or deformed rebars), type of strengthening system (FRP confinement w/ or w/o steel profiles); axial load levels; number of FRP layers used for columns jacketing. In particular, results form tests on rectangular columns are reported herein.
