State-of-the-Art for Experimental Studies on the Mechanical Behavior of FRP-Confined Concrete
Numerous experimental studies have proven that the confinement with FRP-wrap or tube encasement could enhance the strength, ductility and durability of concrete columns. The variation of each distinct experimental test result to its actual mean value is the general cause of modeling inaccuracy, and this appears to be a lack of consensus among the research community. This paper critically reviewed the current experimental studies with the emphasis on the revelation of the mechanical behavior of FRP-confined concrete and analytical study of its behavior.
