Failure Mechanism and Analysis of Reinforced Concrete Members with Fiber-Steel Laminate Composites
The new composite method combined by fiber laminates and steel plate composites was applied for reinforced concrete members. The experimental investigation for the applicability of this method was presented for flexural member. Two different fiber materials such as carbon and fiberglass with steel plate were used. All specimen using fiber material and steel plate were divided by two different groups such as control group without strengthening, innovated fiber-steel laminate composites group. Failure modes and load-deflection curves were presented for flexural members by fiber-steel laminate composites. Numerical analysis for tested beam was investigated.
