Title: Numerical modelling of RC strengthened columns under biaxial loading
Issue Date: 2016
Abstract: During an earthquake, the reinforced concrete (RC) structures are subjected to deformations that may lead their structural elements to exceed the corresponding resistance limit state, forcing them to have nonlinear responses. The application of realistic numerical models that can represent the non-linearity of each structural element requires full examination and calibration. Furthermore, simplified numerical approaches that can represent the seismic behaviour of original and strengthened RC elements are of full importance. For this, the experimental tests are useful to calibrate the numerical models, and thus to capture as well as possible the real response of the elements. The main goal of this work is to evaluate the efficiency of a simplified numerical approach to represent strengthened RC columns with steel and CFRP jacketing, subjected to biaxial horizontal loading. The numerical modelling efficiency will be evaluated by comparing the numerical results with the experimental ones in terms of shear-drift hysteretic behaviour, initial stiffness and stiffness degradation, maximum strength and energy dissipation. The results shows a good performance of the numerical models, mainly for the RC columns strengthened with CFRP jacketing technique.
