Experimental Study on the Fatigue Properties of RC Beam Strengthened by Prestressed CFL
Bonding prestressed CFL to strengthen reinforced RC structures can improve the bending capability of structures and the working efficient of CFL. Base on the fatigue experiments of 4 RC beams strengthened by prestressed CFL, the present paper analyzes the fatigue properties of prestressed CFL reinforced RC beams. Comparing with the experimental results of strengthened RC beams without prestress, it can be concluded that the prestressed technology can improve the reinforcing effect and fatigue lives.
