    • Evaluation of the contribution of flexural CFRP plates in shear strengthening RC beams 

      Saqan, Elias I.; Nawaz, Waleed; Hawileh, Rami; Abdalla, Jamal (Conference on Smart Monitoring, Assessment and Rehabilitation of Civil Structures, 2015)
      Strengthening of RC beams for shear has been typically done by externally attaching strips of steel plates or carbon-fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) sheets or plates on the sides of the beams. However, sides of beams ...
    • External strengthening of shear deficient reinforced concrete beams with flexural CFRP laminates 

      Hawileh, Rami; Nawaz, Waleed; Abdalla, Jamal; Saqan, Elias I. (International Workshop on Performance, Protection & Strengthening of Structures under Extreme Loading (PROTECT 2015), 2015-06)
      This paper presents an experimental investigation of reinforced concrete (RC) beams strengthened in shear with externally bonded flexural carbon-fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) sheets attached to the soffit of the beam via ...
    • The flexural behavior of bolting and bonding Aluminum Alloy plates to RC beams 

      Abuodeh, Omar Raed; Abdalla, Jamal; Hawileh, Rami (Elsevier, 2019)
      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. ...
    • Modeling the fire response of concrete beams reinforced with GFRP beams 

      Hawileh, Rami; Naser, Mohannad (International Conference on Advanced Composite Materials in Bridges and Structures, 2016)
      In the last two decades, researchers and engineers studied the possibility of reinforcing slabs and beams with fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) bars instead of the conventionally used steel reinforcement. Such FRP bars have ...
    • Shear Strengthening of Reinforced Concrete Beams Using CFRP Wraps 

      Mhanna, Haya H.; Hawileh, Rami; Abdalla, Jamal (Elsevier, 2019)
      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 ...
    • Strengthening of reinforced concrete beams in flexure with side bonded CFRP laminates 

      Hawileh, Rami; Salama, Ahmad S. D.; Abdalla, Jamal (Conference on Durability of Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Composites for Construction and Rehabilitation of Structures (CDCC 2017), 2017-07)
      Carbon fiber reinforcement polymer CFRP laminates are widely used nowadays in civil engineering applications to externally strengthen structural concrete elements against deficiencies in flexure and shear. These deficiencies ...
    • Strengthening of thin reinforced concrete slabs with CFRP laminates 

      Hawileh, Rami; Abdalla, Jamal; Mahmoud, Hasan Saleh (International Conference on Advanced Composite Materials in Bridges and Structures, 2016)
      Over the years, engineers and researchers have been working continuously to reduce the dead loads on buildings by reducing the sizes of structural elements. Slabs add significant dead load to buildings compared to other ...
    • Use of Aluminum Alloy Plates as Externally Bonded Shear Reinforcement for R/C Beams 

      Abdalla, Jamal; Abu-Obeidah, Adi Salman; Hawileh, Rami (Elsevier, 2019)
      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) ...
