Carbon Fiber Reinforced the Cracking Framework Top Side Columns Caused by Roof Temperature Deformation
An example of horizontal cracks on the surface of reinforced concrete side-columns is presented. Based on the finite element analysis , a conclusion is made that those cracks are caused by the frame’s deformation under changing temperature. Then the way to calculate the width of such cracks is raised. The design method for the reparation by sticking carbon fiber materials to the column is also developed. Those methods are applicable in realistic works.
