Title

An integrated VE damping and FRP strengthening system for performance-based seismic retrofit of RC columns

Author

Abstract

"A damping-enhanced strengthening methodology is proposed to enable a cost-effective retrofitting design of reinforced concrete (RC) columns for multiple performances objectives. This methodology involves the integration of viscoelastic (VE) damping layers and fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) strengthening sheets into one compact retrofitting system. Both analysis and experiment were conducted to develop and validate the proposed methodology and design equation for the retrofitting system. A distributed mass model of a cantilever rectangular column retrofitted with the proposed system was developed according to the Euler-beam theory. Parametric studies were conducted to understand how sensitive the performance of the proposed system is to its design parameters"--Abstract, leaf iii.
