Achieving strong structures with carbon fiber reinforced Apr 09, 2020 · Researchers of the Structural Engineering Laboratory, Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering, Toyohashi University of Technology have developed a new concept for strengthening steel
Aug 25, 2020 · Steel fiber reinforced polymer (SRP) composite materials, which consist of continuous unidirectional steel wires (cords) embedded in a polymeric matrix, have recently emerged as an effective solution for strengthening of reinforced concrete (RC) structures. SRP is bonded to the surface of RC structures by the same matrix to provide external reinforcement. Interfacial debonding between the
Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) as Reinforcement Damaged or old structures sometime need to be repaired or reinforced to enhance its structural life and performances. There are many ways to strengthen structures. This research investigates the potential of using Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) as reinforcement to concrete beam. In this study, use of CFRP as reinforcement was explored.
Effect of Strengthening of Steel Beams with Variable In this research, four steel beams were fabricated and tested to understand the influence of their strengthening (by using carbon fiber) with various span lengths on load deflection, load-strain, and ultimate load responses. All tested beams have the same cross-sectional area, and they are all strengthened by using intermediate stiffeners and cover steel plate at top flange to insure that
Hybrid fiber reinforcement with both macro and micro steel fibers in the concrete matrix is applied in order to evaluate its effectiveness for crack arresting. One of the main objectives of this research is to establish a crack-free high performance concrete. In severe conditions, which may require high water tightness, such as a storage structure for low-level radioactive waste, crack-free
