This paper presents the results of an experimental study on the behaviour of pre-damaged concrete square columns that have been strengthened with carbon fibre-reinforced polymer (CFRP) wrap. Tests were conducted on 46 concrete columns involving variations of corner radius ratio, damage degree, and confinement pressure. The effect of corner radius on the main parameters of stress-strain curve for FRP strengthened pre-damaged specimens, such as compressive strength, strain capacity, initial elastic modulus, was investigated. The test results demonstrated that the efficiency of repairing damaged columns significantly depends on the corner radius ratio, the strength gain after FRP-strengthening decreases as the corner radius ratio reduces. Using those test data, new ultimate strength and ultimate strain model are proposed. The proposed models involved the effect of both corner radius and damage level, showing good agreement with the experimental results.
