The flexural behavior of bolting and bonding Aluminum Alloy plates to RC beams
The aim of this experimental investigation is to study the effect of using externally bonded and bolted Aluminum Alloy (AA) plates on the strength, stiffness, ductility and failure modes of Reinforced Concrete (RC) beams. ...
Shear Strengthening of Reinforced Concrete Beams Using CFRP Wraps
The need to retrofit existing reinforced concrete (RC) structures have increased over the decades due to corrosion of steel reinforcement inside the concrete, neglect and overuse, and increased loading. Experimental and ...
Use of Aluminum Alloy Plates as Externally Bonded Shear Reinforcement for R/C Beams
Fiber Reinforced Polymers (FRP) and steel had proven to be very effective as externally bonded shear strengthening materials However, they both have their shortcomings. Recently developed high strength Aluminum Alloy (AA) ...
