» COMPRESSIVE STRENGTHENING THROUGH CONFINEMENT WITH CARBON FIBRE FABRICS
The compressive strength of the compressed pillar is below design requirements, or there is a need to increase the ultimate strain, for example, in the case of an increase in structural load or enlargement.
By wrapping the pillar with unidirectional tapes, the masonry compressive strength can be improved. The increase in compressive strength is achievable depending on section geometry, on source material and on the arrangement of the wraps applied around the entire perimeter, and it also leads to a ultimate compressive strain of the masonry, in other words it increases its ductility
