Seismic strengthening is an urgent need for mitigating the high collapse risk of existing and future constructed steel frames during the possible earthquakes in the future. In this study steel frames are strengthened by using externally bonded carbon fibre reinforced polymers (CFRP) composites with varying the layers number of CFRP to mitigate the seismic action on steel frames. Shake table test of bare and strengthened steel frames has been performed. The CFRP strengthening technique improved the stiffness of the steel frames which results less lateral deflection of the steel frames under seismic action and indicates its effectiveness for seismic mitigation of steel frames.
