This paper shows the results of an experimental campaign aimed at testing eight reinforced concrete (RC) columns, four of them being confined through E-glass fiber reinforced cementitious matrix (GFRCM) and four representing the bare specimens. The variables analyzed in this work are: the geometry of column cross-section (circular or square); two stirrups spacing values; the presence or not of the FRCM jacket, which was realized through two layers of fibers. The experimental behavior was characterized in terms of cracking pattern, axial stress-strain response (i.e., strength gain and ductility), and hoop strains development. Particularly, both strains in the GFRCM-jacket and in the inner steel stirrups were monitored during the test. Results in terms of fiber exploitation ratio are also compared with recent results obtained for carbon FRCM (CFRCM) jackets applied to RC columns, characterized by the same geometry.

Abstract

This paper shows the results of an experimental campaign aimed at testing eight reinforced concrete (RC) columns, four of them being confined through E-glass fiber reinforced cementitious matrix (GFRCM) and four representing the bare specimens. The variables analyzed in this work are: the geometry of column cross-section (circular or square); two stirrups spacing values; the presence or not of the FRCM jacket, which was realized through two layers of fibers. The experimental behavior was characterized in terms of cracking pattern, axial stress-strain response (i.e., strength gain and ductility), and hoop strains development. Particularly, both strains in the GFRCM-jacket and in the inner steel stirrups were monitored during the test. Results in terms of fiber exploitation ratio are also compared with recent results obtained for carbon FRCM (CFRCM) jackets applied to RC columns, characterized by the same geometry.
