Abstract The objective of the present study is to examine the significance and limitation of a V-clip developed to prevent the opening of overlapped channel-type hoops in the jacket section of section enlargement strengthening columns. Five full-scale columns were tested under concentric axial loads. Test results revealed that, until ultimate failure of strengthed columns, no opening of the overlapped legs of the channel-type hoops and supplementary V-ties was observed in the jacket section with the developed V-ties and V-clips. The axial ductility ratios of the strengthened columns with V-ties and V-clips were as much as 1.66 times higher when compared with that measured in the existing non-seismic column. In addition, the strengthened columns with V-ties and V-clips exhibited 1.42 times higher axial ductility than those of counterpart columns without V-clips of the same details. Overall, the proposed supplementary V-ties and V-clips possess the potential to enhance the ductility of section enlargement strengthening columns, satisfying the seismic design details of code provision in the jacket section.
