Abstract

Reinforced concrete (RC) bridge piers damaged after a strong earthquake are repaired. The damaged concrete and the steel reinforcement parts are replaced by rebar segments connected to the existing rebar parts by welding connections and by a self-compacting concrete jacket respectively. A modest transverse steel reinforcement, not sufficient to improve the seismic pier capacity, is used to simplifies the concrete cast in modest volumes. After the repair, a carbon fiber reinforced polymer (Carbon FRP) reinforcement is applied to enhance the pier ductility and the shear strength. Three RC circular columns, representative of piers, were repaired and reinforced by the proposed strategy to be tested in lab applying a deformation history due to a strong earthquake. The piers were able to sustain very strong seismic demand and therefore the proposed repair and retrofitting interventions are effective. The strain distribution of the Carbon FRP reinforcement was measured and discussed to increase the very modest database presented in the literature.
