    • 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 ...
    • 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 ...
