ENHANCING SEISMIC RESILIENCE: VALIDATION OF FRP REPAIR TECHNIQUES THROUGH 6-DOF HYBRID TESTING

  • 1. Swinburne University of Technology, Australia

Description

This paper highlights the role of 6-DOF hybrid testing as a validation tool for assessing the effectiveness of Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) composite repair and retrofitting techniques in structures undergoing seismic events. By combining physical testing and numerical simulations, the advanced hybrid testing technique accurately replicates complex loading conditions, including axial, lateral, longitudinal, pitch, roll, and yaw forces. This comprehensive evaluation helps optimize the design and implementation of FRP solutions, enhancing the seismic resilience of reinforced-concrete structures. The paper presents some examples emphasizing the importance of hybrid testing in promoting the adoption of FRP composites and advancing seismic retrofitting practices in civil engineering.
