Title: Design Equations for FRP–Strengthening of Columns
Author(s): G. Monti and S. Alessandri
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 1067-1084
Keywords: columns; FRP strengthening; interaction domain; seismic upgrade
Abstract:The paper presents an analytical study on FRP–strengthened RC sectionsunder combined bending and axial load. A secant approach is used that comparesquite well with the exact one. As a result, closed-form equations are developed fordesigning in a straightforward way the amount of FRP needed to flexurally strengthenunder–designed concrete columns.
