Abstract

A seismic retrofitting method to enhance the flexural strength, ductility capacity and shear resistance of existing reinforced concrete bridge columns through externally reinforcing the column with advanced composite materials (ACM) is presented. Test results of ten scaled-down concrete columns indicate that the confinement and the lateral stresses induced by the ACM straps significantly increased the shear strength and ductility capacity, and greatly improved the flexural behavior of reinforced concrete columns under simulated earthquake loading.
