1ENGINEERING PROJECT PREPARATIONExecutive SummaryCFRP is a strengthening material made of carbon fiber that is widely used to repair andstrengthen concrete columns. The main benefits of CFRP are rigidity, strength and low weightthat enables the construction engineers to use this material for building heavy structures likemulti-storey buildings, bridges and others. However, due to lack of sufficient experimentalanalysis and design issues, some construction companies avoid using this material. Futureprospects suggest this material will be used widely and globally across the world in order todevelop heavy structures.

3ENGINEERING PROJECT PREPARATION1.0 Introduction and OverviewThis project proposal is mainly based on strengthening and repair of concrete columnusing CFRP (Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer). CFRP generally includes different variations ofcarbon polymer made of different proportions of other strengthening materials to develop fiber-reinforced plastic. This type of material provides high strength-to-weight ratio and hence, theycan be used to build materials that should be light in weight but rigid and strong (e.g. tail of radiocontrolled helicopter) (Jain, Chellapandian and Prakash 2017). The CFRP material is becomingmore and more popular as it is also environment friendly and relatively cheaper than otheralternative materials. CFRP finds uses in various fields that include aeronautical engineering,automotive engineering, civil engineering, sports goods and others. However, the focus of thispaper is entirely on civil engineering and hence, an application of CFRP will be discussed withinthe field of civil engineering.CFRP is generally used as one of the most important components for repair andstrengthening of concrete columns in civil engineering. The main advantage is that due to the useof CFRP, the concrete column has lesser weight than normal columns without CFRP but thestrength and rigidity increases considerably. This paper is based on the analysis of CFRP in thestrengthening concrete column as well as a proposal for experimental analysis of the same.2.0 Analysis and Critical Overview of Existing ResearchThe most recent report by Joint ACI-ASCE Committee 352 (ACI 352R-02) states thatjoints in structures worked in front of the improvement of current design rules must be learned tofind and analyze the characteristics and uses of the FRP materials in repair and strengthening of
