A new repair technique consisting on a light jacketing with Fibre Reinforced Cementitious Composites (FRCC) for existing reinforced concrete (RC) buildings has been recently proposed to reduce durability problems of RC members and enhance their capacity. In this work, the effects of FRCC jacketing on the flexural capacity of existing RC columns, with and without a pre-damage, has been evaluated of full-scale specimens under cyclic loading. Digital Imagine Correlation (DIC) was also adopted for understanding the strain distribution in the FRCC jacket. The results shown that the FRCC jacket without a proper anchorage slightly enhanced the flexural capacity of the column. The strengthened column experienced a low damage with respect to control column, but occurrence of premature failures did not allow the achievement of high levels of deformation capacity and ductility.
