Seismic Strengthening of Deficient RC Buildings Using Post-Tensioned Metal Straps: An experimental Investigation (bibtex)
by Reyes Garcia Lopez, Kypros Pilakoutas, Maurizio Guadagnini, Yasser Jemaa, Yasser Helal, Iman Hajirasouliha, Philippe Mongabure
Abstract:
This paper presents some of the preliminary results of the European research project BANDIT (SERIES Programme). The project investigates experimentally the efficiency of Post-Tensioned Metal Straps (PTMS) strengthening at improving the seismic performance of a seismically deficient full-scale two-storey RC building tested on a shaking table. To simulate typical deficient buildings, the reinforcement of columns and beam-column joints were poorly detailed. The first two test stages performed on the BANDIT building are summarised here. In Stage 1, the bare building was tested to produce damage and evaluate its basic performance. After the initial tests, the damaged building was repaired and subsequently strengthened using PTMS. In Stage 2 the building was re-tested to examine the efficiency of the PTMS technique. The results show that the PTMS strengthening improved substantially the seismic performance of the deficient building
