This paper focuses on rehabilitation/strengthening of damaged concrete prisms through external carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP) jacketing. In order to evaluate the efficiency of the strengthening method on the damaged concrete prisms, an experimental study including 22 concrete prisms with square and rectangular cross sections was carried out. The parameters of the experimental study are the damage levels. Furthermore, effects of loading scheme (monotonic or cyclic) and cross section type (square and rectangular) were investigated in the existence of damage. The concrete prisms were tested under compression stresses up to three specified axial deformation levels to be representative of slight, moderate, and severe compression damages before strengthening. Tests were repeated after rehabilitation/strengthening of damaged specimens with CFRP jacketing. Test results showed that CFRP rehabilitation/strengthening was effective on enhancement of strength and deformability of the damaged concrete prisms. However, the efficiency of the strengthening method in terms of compressive strength tended to reduce when the level of damage increased. Furthermore, an available model is modified to include the effects of damage level, and the modified model is shown to produce accurate results. (C) 2015 American Society of Civil Engineers.
