Abstract: After the completion of the design life of a structure, there is a necessity to repair or upgrade the structure in many ways. This strengthening and improvement of the performance of the deficient structural element is known as retrofitting. The main objective of the retrofit is to strengthen the building to satisfy the requirements of the present design load. In this paper, An RCC structure has been designed and analyzed in E-Tabs. The number of floors in the structure was increased over the top floor of the existing structure and due to increase of the floors in the structure the design loads were increased. Some of the existing columns in the bottom floors were failed and these are retrofitted using CFRP jacketing technique in ANSYS to increase the strength and to meet the current design requirements.
