ABSTRACT
In this paper, the analytical and experimental results of tests on a benchmark and a damaged circular bridge column are presented. The benchmark column is a 40% scale reinforced concrete circular bridge column damaged as a result of shear failure during a cyclic-loading test; the benchmark column was then repaired by epoxy and non-shrinkage mortar and rehabilitated by carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) after the cyclic-loading test. The benchmark bridge column is tested under a cyclic-loading test with constant axial load. The result shows that the column suffered shear failure at low displacement ductility. Non-shrinkage mortar with high-pressure epoxy injection was used to repair the damaged bridge column, and then three-layer CFRP was used to rehabilitate the shear strength of the bridge column. The test result shows that the repaired and rehabilitated column develops significantly improved hys ter etic responses at high displacement ductility. The analytical lateral force – displacement relationship of the bridge columns can accurately predict the experimental result, especially in the nonlinear region.
