In this paper the behaviour in compression of RC columns externally strengthened with concrete jacketing is analysed and a cross-section analysis of the jacketed member under axial load and bending moment is developed.

Some other important aspects such as shrinkage, creep, old to new concrete surfaces and bond split effects were not included in the model because: the use of thick non-shrink grout jacket and a well-roughened surface of old-to-new concrete was supposed; long term effects were included though corrective coefficients for monolithic behaviour proposed in the literature. A preliminary validation of the model adopted was made referring to the short-term experimental data available in the literature on the compressive behaviour of RC columns strengthened with concrete jacketing. Good agreement was obtained with the available data in terms of momentaxial force domains and moment–curvature diagrams.

Abstract

In this paper the behaviour in compression of RC columns externally strengthened with concrete jacketing is analysed and a cross-section analysis of the jacketed member under axial load and bending moment is developed. The focus was to study the effect of confinement of concrete jacket on concrete core and the behaviour of compressed bars with buckling effects. Some other important aspects such as shrinkage, creep, old to new concrete surfaces and bond split effects were not included in the model because: the use of thick non-shrink grout jacket and a well-roughened surface of old-to-new concrete was supposed; long term effects were included though corrective coefficients for monolithic behaviour proposed in the literature. A preliminary validation of the model adopted was made referring to the short-term experimental data available in the literature on the compressive behaviour of RC columns strengthened with concrete jacketing. Good agreement was obtained with the available data in terms of momentaxial force domains and moment–curvature diagrams. The analysis showed the effectiveness of this reinforcing technique in improving both the strength and the ductility of RC cross-sections of columns, highlighting the importance of an accurate choice of strengthened materials (concrete grade, thickness of jacket, space and diameter of stirrups, etc.).
