Deformation Behavior of Reinforced Concrete Members with Prefabricated Fiber Laminate Composites


Article Preview

The innovative method based on prefabricated fiber laminate composites bonded to lightweight precast panel was applied for quality control of RC strengthening members. The experimental investigations for this method were presented for flexural member. Three different groups such as control group without strengthening, conventional fiber bonding group and innovated PFLC group bonded to precast panel. Tested results showed good or better capacities comparing to conventional strengthening method for flexural members. This investigation indicate that good enhancement with respect to quality control and reliability can be possible by the installation and epoxy injection with prefabricated panel using fiber laminate composites.
