Design of FRP and Steel Plated RC Structures Retrofitting by Deric Oehlers, Rudolph Seracino

By Deric Oehlers, Rudolph Seracino

There are a wide and ever-increasing variety of buildings and structures world wide which are short of refurbishment, rehabilitation and strengthening. The retrofitting of beams and slabs for this goal is now famous because the least expensive and environmentally sustainable approach to undertaking this crucial upkeep work.

The authors of Design of FRP and metal Plated RC Structures are either stated global specialists on those recommendations and their ebook has been designed to supply the reader with a finished review of the proven strategies and their functions in addition to thorough insurance of newly rising methodologies and their makes use of. The comparability of FRP and metal is a specific concentration and the authors offer useful examples of the place one fabric should be utilized in choice to a different. certainly functional, labored examples of the way, whilst, and why particular suggestions were selected in real-world events are used during the textual content and supply the person with precious insights into the decision-making approach and its technical historical past. simply as importantly those examples make the knowledge and alertness of those concepts more straightforward to appreciate for the scholar and the practitioner. The e-book is foreign in charm, as whereas no reference is made to precise neighborhood codes the authors’ method constantly follows that of the extra complicated structural codes all over the world. As such it is going to stay a necessary source for a few years to come.

Design of FRP and metal Plated RC buildings is a vital reference for a vast variety of researchers, scholars and practitioners together with civil engineers and contractors, architects, designers and builders.

  • Contains specified labored examples all through to help realizing and supply technical insight
  • Covers every kind of steel plates and every kind of FRP plates
  • Uses layout philosophies that may be used with any mathematical model
  • Provides assurance of all major foreign guidelines

2 Global interface behaviour The global distribution of the interface shear stress T;nt along the length of an adhesively-bonded plate in a pull-push test is shown in Figs. 13. 2 mm thick CFRP plate with an average adhesive layer thickness of 2 mm as the axial load in the plate is increased. The origin of the graph is at the loaded end (top) of the concrete prism in Fig. 11 (b) which represents the position of an intermediate crack. 8 kN, the plate-to-concrete joint is uncracked and the shape of the shear stress distribution is that given by classical linear elastic theory.

It can be seen in both Figs. 16 that IC interface cracks initiate at the crack/plate intercept and propagate towards the plate end. They can occur at very low loads and are initially of no significance, as in Figs. 16, until they have spread sufficiently to join together and reduce the strains in the plate, in which case IC debonding can be considered to occur. It can be seen that IC debonding is primarily 8 Design ofFRP and Steel Plated RC Structures concerned with the strains in the plate that are required to accommodate the intermediate crack and it is a gradual failure with plenty of warning.
