Abstract

This paper reports the numerical simulation of earthquake-damaged circular columns repaired with the combination of near-surface-mounted (NSM) basalt fiber reinforced polymer (BFRP) bars with external BFRP sheets jacketing at quasi-static loading. The numerical modeling was carried out with the nonlinear OpenSees software platform by using the BeamWithHinges element. In the simulations, the effect of the previous earthquake damage on the behavior of the repaired columns was taken into account, and a simple and effective material damage-accumulation model is proposed to modify the constitutive of materials in the unrepaired regions of the repaired columns. The developed numerical models were validated by comparing their quasi-static findings with those obtained from a previous experimental program, and a good agreement can be observed. Furthermore, the efficiency of the repair technique used in tests is evaluated via the developed numerical model. View Full-Text
