Steel jacketing of reinforced concrete (RC) columns is a common retrofitting technique used to restore bearing and deformation capacity of buildings presenting structural deficiencies. For practical reasons, steel angles are in several cases arranged leaving a gap with the end beams or slabs. Despite this disconnection, the angles are still able to support a non-negligible portion of load because of the frictional forces developed along the column-angle contact interface. In these cases, the definition of computational numerical and analytical models for the assessment of reinforced cross sections becomes more complex and must be handled with care. The actual load-carrying capacity of the angles is a function of lateral confinement pressure, cohesive strength, and the friction coefficient between the materials. This paper presents first the results of an original experimental campaign on RC column specimens with and without steel jacketing subjected to compressive axial and eccentric tests. Subsequently, a new approach is proposed to define a plane fiber-section model of the reinforced cross section accounting for the frictional action occurring along the column-angle interfaces. An equivalent stress-strain constitutive model for the angles is calibrated and validated through comparison with experimental results.

Abstract

Steel jacketing of reinforced concrete (RC) columns is a common retrofitting technique used to restore bearing and deformation capacity of buildings presenting structural deficiencies. For practical reasons, steel angles are in several cases arranged leaving a gap with the end beams or slabs. Despite this disconnection, the angles are still able to support a non-negligible portion of load because of the frictional forces developed along the column-angle contact interface. In these cases, the definition of computational numerical and analytical models for the assessment of reinforced cross sections becomes more complex and must be handled with care. The actual load-carrying capacity of the angles is a function of lateral confinement pressure, cohesive strength, and the friction coefficient between the materials. This paper presents first the results of an original experimental campaign on RC column specimens with and without steel jacketing subjected to compressive axial and eccentric tests. Subsequently, a new approach is proposed to define a plane fiber-section model of the reinforced cross section accounting for the frictional action occurring along the column-angle interfaces. An equivalent stress-strain constitutive model for the angles is calibrated and validated through comparison with experimental results. Finally, a simple analytical stress-block procedure to derive continuous and simplified axial force bending moment domains is illustrated as a method for the hand-verification of reinforced cross sections.
