Abstract


  • In this study, a new equation is proposed to compute the maximum axial load carrying capacity of FRP bar

    reinforced concrete columns under axial compression. The equation proposed in this study was critically compared

    with the equations proposed in the previous research studies using a wide range of experimental data

    taken from the available literature. In general, it was found that computing the contribution of the FRP longitudinal

    bars in concrete columns based on the modulus of elasticity (stiffness) of the FRP bars provides more

    rational predictions than computing the contribution of the FRP longitudinal bars based on the ultimate tensile

    strength of the FRP bars. It was also found that using a concrete compressive strength-based empirical equation

    in estimating the axial strain in the FRP longitudinal bars in concrete columns provides more accurate predictions

    of the contribution of the longitudinal FRP bars in the axial load sustained by the FRP bar reinforced

    concrete columns.
