Abstract

Six numerical examples are provided to illustrate the design procedures recommended, as well as two additional examples of the American Concrete Institute (ACI) procedure for strengthening columns for comparison. Examples include: flexural strengthening of a reinforced concrete girder, flexural strengthening of prestressed concrete girder, shear strengthening with two-sided wrap, shear strengthening with U-wrap, axial strengthening of a confined circular column, and axial strengthening of a confined square column.
