Reliability Research of Masonry Column Strengthened with CFRP Based on Monte-Carlo Method
CFRP(Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastics) reinforced structure, as one kind of new technology, has been applied extensively in concrete structure, and CFRP reinforced masonry structure has been began studying and applied. But reliability research of masonry strengthened with CFRP is less, which restrains applying of CFRP. In the paper, Combined with the theory of reliability and tests, supposed that it is basic random variable that strength of brick and mortar and geometry dimension of members and effect of load, it is established that the stability probabilistic formula of brick column reinforced by CFRP under axial-loading. Its reliability is calculated, by means of Matlab. Under the action of different loads and total loads being constant, it is analyzed that the relationship of index of reliability and ratio of loading effect. Some useful results are gotten. And the result calculated is reasonable and reliable and it may supply engineering personnel with computer basis.
