PSEUDO-STATIC EXPERIMENT AND ANALYSIS ON SEISMIC BEHAVIOR OF THE RC COLUMNS STRENGTHENED BY GHPFRCC

Abstract

Green high performance fiber reinforced cementitious composites (GHPFRCC) are a new class of sustainable cementitious composites, employing a high volume of fly ash to replace cement. In addition to increasing the sustainability of the construction environment, GHPFRCC exhibits a high tensile ductility and multiple cracking behaviors in the strainhardening state. These materials can effectively improve the structural energy dissipation capacity and structural durability. In this study, the optimum mixture ratio of GHPFRCC is presented established using an orthogonal experiment for a specific engineering application. The described GHPFRCC sustains the mechanical performance of concrete and is employed as the outer cladding to strengthen concrete columns. The finite element analysis of the material was based on the software ABAQUS and pseudo static experiments were conducted to exhibit retrofitting of GHPFRCC applied in the rehabilitation of seismic-damaged concrete columns. The computed and experimental results showed that GHPFRCC, while incorporating high volume fly ash, can retain significant multiple cracking behaviors. The energy dissipation capacity of the GHPFRCC reinforced concrete (RC) column is better than the comparable unreinforced column.
