The Research on Strengthening Technique for Aged RC Beam


Article Preview

The strengthening technique for the aged RC beam was introduced in this paper. A series of measures were utilized to increase the bond strength between CFRP and aged RC beam. The results of experiment indicate that ultimate bearing capacity of the strengthened RC beam increased almost 46%.
