Experimental Study on Behaviors of Unbonded Prestressed Concrete Beams Reinforced with CFRP Tendons
In order to research behaviors of unbonded prestressed concrete beams reinforced with CFRP tendons, static load experiments on 4 partially prestressed simple beams with unbonded CFRP tendons and 9 two spans partially prestressed concrete continuous beams with unbonded CFRP tendons were performed. Based on the experiment results of simple beams, the law of ultimate stress increment in unbonded CFRP tendons in simple beams was obtained. Based on the experiment results of continuous beams, the law of stress increment in unbonded CFRP tendons in continuous beams was obtained at serviceability state and at strength limit state of bending capacity. The calculation formula of length of equivalent plastic hinge for this kind of continuous beam was presented. The calculation formulas of moment modification coefficient with composite reinforcement index for intermediate support as variable and relative plastic rotation for intermediate support as variable were given respectively.
