The use of composite materials has been increased in strengthening of concrete structures in recent years. Composite materials have interesting properties such as high strength to weight ratio, ease of fabrication, good electrical and thermal properties compared to metals. A laminated composite material consists of several layers of a composite mixture consisting of matrix and fibers. Each layer may have similar or dissimilar material properties with different fiber orientations under varying stacking sequence. There are many open issues relating to design of these composites. Analysis of such composite materials starts with estimation of resultant material properties. Both classical theory and numerical methods such as finite element modeling may be employed in this line. The obtained constants are validated with an ANSYS model, where the laminate stacking sequence is built and the member is subjected to a uniform strain at free end, while the reaction stress at the fixed end is predicted. The developed interface simplifies the design process to some extent. In this paper technique for upgrading reinforced concrete column have been analysed with the application of composite material like FRP. Linear analysis of column specimen was accomplished using ANSYS. The analysis done will be useful for determining deformation of concrete column reinforced with FRP bar. The dynamic analysis in terms of fundamental linear analysis is illustrated by using ANSYS these overall material constants as of analysis.
