Abstract [en]

A strengthening solution for multi-storey buildings in seismically active regions is considered. The Precast Reinforced Concrete Large Panel (PRCLP) structural system is described. Besides earthquakes, different problems during the last decades were identified in the PRCLP structural behaviour: design mistakes, neglected health monitoring, construction problems, change of use for example cut-out openings. The presented study is a part of an ongoing research program which deals with the influence of the Fibre Reinforced Polymer (FRP) strengthening on the behaviour of Precast RC Wall Panels (PRCWP) with cut out openings subjected to cyclic (seismic) and normal (gravity) loading. In this paper a brief literature survey concerning RC walls strengthened by FRP is presented and the experimental tests setup is discussed. The wall specimens were designed according to the 1981 Romanian code. Tests are described and a discussion based on previous experimental work on shear walls is undertaken and future research is suggested.
