Evaluation of the contribution of flexural CFRP plates in shear strengthening RC beams
(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 ...
Modeling the fire response of concrete beams reinforced with GFRP beams
(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 ...
External strengthening of shear deficient reinforced concrete beams with flexural CFRP laminates
(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 ...
Strengthening of reinforced concrete beams in flexure with side bonded CFRP laminates
(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 ...
