Retrofitting of columns in the existing structure with expanding of section with concrete jacketing and steel plates

Session

Description

This thesis aims to assess the carrying capacity of the existing structure and evaluating two methods for retrofitting of structure or its elements. The focus will be to the vertical elements, columns.

The methodology is based in the examining of the quality of the concrete for the respective columns and their actual carrying capacity.

After evaluation the carrying capacity, we will consider two methods of retrofitting as: concrete jacketing and steel plates.

The focus of this thesis is to analyze the structure the columns of which were designed to be of the concrete class C-30/37, but after the testing of concrete, the class was lower.

Based in relevant testing and analyses we will have the conclusion for each retrofitting method. In this way we have a summary of the actual state of the structure, starting from concrete class, carrying capacity and possible ways to retrofit with two methods.
