Mechanical Behavior of FRP-Confined Rectangular Concrete Column


Article Preview

According to the analysis of existing experimental data, it is well known that the behavior of FRP-confined rectangular concrete column were mainly related to the cross section coefficient of concrete, the confinement effect coefficient and the strength of concrete. Based on experimental study and theoretical analysis, the formula for bearing capacity and ultimate axial strain of FRP-confined rectangular concrete column were proposed, and the stress-strain model with strain-hardening components or strain-softening components. The effects of every parameter on the stress-strain relationship were carefully considered. The predictions of the model agree well with test data.
