Analytical study of reinforced concrete beams strengthened

Bonding fiber reinforced plastic (FRP) plates or fabrics to the web of reinforced concrete beams can increase the shear and flexural capacity of the beam. This paper presents analytical models to calculate the stresses in the strengthened beam, and the shear force resisted by the composite plate before cracking and after formation of flexural

Aug 25,  · The study concerns the investigation of flexural behaviour of steel fibre reinforced concrete (SFRC) and conventional reinforce concrete (RC) beams incorporating steel fibre. Hooked-end steel fibres were used at the contents of 20 kg/m3, 40 kg/m3, 60 kg/m3, 80 kg/m3 and 100 kg/m3 in production of SFRC specimens and RC beams. Flexural tests were achieved on both SFRC and RC beams

Reinforced concrete - Wikipedia

Reinforced concrete (RC), also called reinforced cement concrete (RCC), is a composite material in which concrete's relatively low tensile strength and ductility are compensated for by the inclusion of reinforcement having higher tensile strength or ductility. The reinforcement is usually, though not necessarily, steel bars and is usually embedded passively in the concrete before the concrete

The strengthening and deformation behaviour of reinforced

After strengthening with externally bonded carbon fibre reinforced polymer (CFRP) plates, a number of beams of 1.0 m and 4.5 m lengths were tested in four point bending. The plates were bonded without prestress and with prestress levels ranging from 25% to 50% of the plate strength.

54. Failure of a Reinforced Concrete Beam

A reinforced concrete (RC) beam exhibits three modes during failure stages: tension failure, compression failure, and balanced failure. Though the attempt of every structural designer is to achieve the balanced failure, it is not that easily achievable as there are multiple factors which affects the behavior of a RC beam. This blog post highlights the

Torsional behaviour of reinforced concrete beams

Reinforced concrete beams were strengthened initially and compared with unstrengthened beams by most of the researchers. However, the behavior of RC members must be assessed after the structure has been loaded and, at least, some of the members have been damaged to a certain extent, and therefore, may need to be rehabilitated for

PDF] Behavior of Reinforced Concrete Beams Strengthened

The use of steel wire rope has been suggested as a new economical technique to strengthen and rehabilitate reinforced concrete beams, as well as to support the CFRP used in strengthening. The best results were obtained when using either CFRP and wire rope together, or wire rope on its own. It was found that strengthening by CFRP and wire rope increased the flexural strength, hardness, and
