Carbon Fiber column confinement for increased flexural capacity

Unidirectional Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer (CFRP), is frequently used for increasing flexural capacity of reinforced concrete columns subjected to bending and compression

As we all know, concrete is great in compression but lacks the tensile properties necessary for the demands so is usually poured with steel rebar embedded in it. This rebar provides the necessary tensile requirements so that the concrete can perform for the intended application.

If this rebar is missing, damaged, or deteriorated, carbon fiber can be added to an existing structure in order to provide the necessary tensile capacities related to a specific load pattern.
