Abstract:A parametric analysis and experimental study of concrete columns reinforced by steel-BFRP (basalt fiber reinforced polymer) composite bar (SBFCB) were conducted. The relationship between post-yield stiffness of SBFCB and SBFCB reinforced concrete columns was investigated. The influences of reinforcement ratio, axial compression ratio, and post-yield stiffness ratio were explored. The results show that (1) under the same reinforcement ratio, the post-yield stiffness of SBFCB columns increases with the post-yield stiffness ratio of SBFCB; (2) the higher the BFRP content of SBFCB, the better deformation capacity of SBFCB column can be achieved due to the smaller curvature demand of column base; (3) a higher SBFCB post-yield stiffness ratio can delay or prevent the collapse of concrete column caused by P- effect; (4) the residual displacements of SBFCB columns are much smaller than those of ordinary RC columns, that is, the SBFCB column has a more better post-earthquake repairability.
