CSM-GFRP, Steel Jacketing, Confinement, compressive axial load
The retrofitting is the method of enhancing the strength of existing concrete structure by applying the appropriate composite material such as Fibre Reinforced Polymer (FRP), Steel Jacketing etc. One of these applications are Chopped Strand Mat (CSM), Glass Fibre Reinforced Polymer (GFRP) strengthening and retrofitting of reinforced concrete columns. The objective of this study is to make a comparison between without wrapped reinforced columns and columns wrapped with CSM-GFRP sheet. These reinforced short columns were tested under the compressive axial load monotonically. Results of research work have shown that wrapping of columns with CSM-GFRP sheet enhances the ductile as well as compressive strength when compared with the non-wrapped reinforced columns. CSM-GFRP confinement is a cost effective material than other retrofitting methods. This research work also gives the comparison of strength efficiency with respect to additional cost of CSM-GFRP sheet.
