Project Details

Title:Seismic Repair of Concrete Wall Piers Using CFRP Active Confinement
Principal Investigators:Chris P. Pantelides
University:University of Utah
Grant #:DTRT13-G-UTC38 (MAP21)
Project #:MPC-526
RH Display ID:15705
Keywords:carbon fibers, earthquake resistant structures, fiber reinforced polymers, maintenance, piers (supports), retrofitting


The objectives of this project are to: (1) provide alternative methods to repair and strengthen lap splice deficiencies of concrete wall piers through the use of carbon fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP) materials using active confinement; (2) develop an analytical model which will assist in the development of a design method for implementing the strengthening system in existing concrete wall pier bridges.
