Behaviour of Steel Reinforced Concrete Section with CFRP Wrapping Under Axial Compression

2019 International Journal of Engineering and Advanced Technology  
The composite structural element under study is a carbon fiber wrapped, steel I section reinforced concrete column. The wrapped CFRP is under tension and reinforced concrete under radial compression. The aim of the research is to determine the behavior of the composite structural element under axial loads. The Stress-strain characteristics and load bearing capacity of control and CFRP wrapped tubular columns were determined experimentally. Further, Finite element analysis of steel, reinforced
