Load Test on Reinforced Concrete Beams Strengthened by Carbon Fiber Laminated Plates - A Case Study
A load test was performed on reinforced concrete beams that were strengthened with carbon fibers. Seventy five thousands blocks were placed in four stages. A quality and management team worked continuously in the testing process. No creep effects were noticed with the use of carbon fiber plates, an interesting observation.
