Paper Title:
Experimental Study on CFRP-Bonded Steel Plates with Thickness Reduction Using Underwater Epoxy
  Abstract

This paper presents a series of uniaxial loading tests on the thickness-reduced steel plates bonded with carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) strand sheets using underwater epoxy as adhesive. Four sets of material test are carried out on epoxy coupons at different curing times. Repaired performance of CFRP-bonded steel plates is investigated in terms of initial stiffness, yield strength, and failure mode of the specimens. Test results showed that the structural performance of CFRP-bonded steel plates does not reach the expected design level due to a slow curing process of epoxy adhesive in this study. The curing effects of epoxy adhesive on the repaired performance are discussed.
