Book Description :

The repair of deteriorated, damaged and substandard civil infrastructures has become one of the most important issues for the civil engineer worldwide. This important book discusses the use of externally-bonded fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites to strengthen, rehabilitate and retrofit civil engineering structures, covering such aspects as material behaviour, structural design and quality assurance. The first three chapters of the book review structurally-deficient civil engineering infrastructure, including concrete, metallic, masonry and timber structures. FRP composites used in rehabilitation and surface preparation of the component materials are also reviewed. The next four chapters deal with the design of FRP systems for the flexural and shear strengthening of reinforced concrete (RC) beams and the strengthening of RC columns. The following two chapters examine the strengthening of metallic and masonry structures with FRP composites. The last four chapters of the book are devoted to practical considerations in the flexural strengthening of beams with unstressed and prestressed FRP plates, durability of externally bonded FRP composite systems, quality assurance and control, maintenance, repair, and case studies. With its distinguished editors and international team of contributors, Strengthening and rehabilitation of civil infrastructures using fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites is a valuable reference guide for engineers, scientists and technical personnel in civil and structural engineering working on the rehabilitation and strengthening of the civil infrastructure. Reviews the use of fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites in structurally damaged and sub-standard civil engineering structures Examines the role and benefits of fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites in different types of structures such as masonry and metallic strengthening Covers practical considerations including material behaviour, structural design and quality assurance

Book Description :

The in situ rehabilitation or upgrading of reinforced concrete members using bonded steel plates is an effective, convenient and economic method of improving structural performance. However, disadvantages inherent in the use of steel have stimulated research into the possibility of using fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) materials in its place, providing a non-corrosive, more versatile strengthening system. This book presents a detailed study of the flexural strengthening of reinforced and prestressed concrete members using fibre reinforces polymer composite plates. It is based to a large extent on material developed or provided by the consortium which studied the technology of plate bonding to upgrade structural units using carbon fibre / polymer composite materials. The research and trial tests were undertaken as part of the ROBUST project, one of several ventures in the UK Government's DTI-LINK Structural Composites Programme. The book has been designed for practising structural and civil engineers seeking to understand the principles and design technology of plate bonding, and for final year undergraduate and postgraduate engineers studying the principles of highway and bridge engineering and structural engineering. Detailed study of the flexural strengthening of reinforced and prestressed concrete members using fibre reinforced polymer composites Contains in-depth case histories

Book Description :

Many existing concrete structures were designed in accordance with outdated standards or specifications that do not satisfy current design requirements and are being rated as structurally deficient. Furthermore, upgrades on those structures often demand them to carry larger loads, resulting in a need to repair and strengthen. The retrofitting technique using near-surface-mounted (NSM) fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) composite materials has emerged and proved to be a reliable alternative to the externally bonded (EB) FRP method. Although NSM FRP technique has been applied to real structures in the field, more detailed design guides are still in need. More experimental and theoretical data are needed to establish those guides, which cover comprehensive aspects of the technique. In this study, the NSM FRP method was, therefore, investigated at three levels: material, sub-component (bond characteristics), and structural level (flexural strengthening). Through the material level study, main material properties of FRP rods were obtained, which were used for fundamental information for the sub-component and structural level study. Crucial factors for the NSM FRP technique were assessed at the sub-component and structural levels and the correlation between the two levels was investigated. First, tensile tests were carried out in the laboratory to obtain the main material properties of FRP reinforcements used in the study, such as the elastic modulus, tensile strength, and ultimate strain. To avoid any slippage while loading, an effective surface treatment was developed and applied to the surface of FRP rods. The material properties are listed and compared with those by the manufacturers. FRP rods were pulled out from a total of 109 concrete blocks (350 x 300 x 150 mm) to evaluate bond characteristics between the FRP rods and concrete. A direct pull-out configuration was utilized. Variables for the bond study include: surface conditions (smooth, sand coated, ribbed, spirally wound and sand coated, grooved, spirally wound and sand coated and indented, and roughened), cross-sectional shapes (round, square, and strip), and material types (carbon and glass). In addition, the effects of groove sizes (three different dimensions for each type of FRP reinforcement) and adhesive types (one acrylic and six epoxies) were evaluated. The test results showed that surface treatment affected bond behavior and the spiral winding and sand coating with indentation seemed to be most efficient. The strip shape was more effective than round and square shapes. Higher bond strength was obtained in using carbon FRP (CFRP) than glass FRP (GFRP). In general, increasing groove sizes was effective in improving bond capacity. The bond strength of the specimen was generally dependent on the bond strength of the adhesive. The effect of flexural strengthening using eight different NSM FRP reinforcements on pre-damaged reinforced concrete (RC) bridge slab overhangs (1.5 m long in overhang and 0.9 m wide) was assessed. In total, thirteen full-scale overhangs were examined with four test parameters related to the FRP reinforcement: a) material types (carbon and glass); b) cross-sectional shapes (round, strip, and square); c) surface configurations (smooth, spirally wound and sand coated, sand coated, ribbed, and roughened); and d) degree of prestressing. The test results showed that the NSM FRP technique was effective in increasing both yield and ultimate load-carrying capacity of the pre-damaged RC bridge slab overhangs. With a similar amount of axial stiffness among the strengthened specimens, GFRP rods were as efficient as CFRP rods. All surface treatments were more beneficial than the smooth condition. The square-shaped FRP reinforcement displayed better performance than the round shape. The prestressing unit developed in this study was simple to apply and could be further explored for the field applications. Theoretical results from moment-curvature analysis were in good agreement with experimental ones. Furthermore, crucial design parameters such as bond-dependent coefficient and optimum groove sizes were investigated. To avoid debonding failure of structures strengthened with NSM FRP reinforcement, the bond-dependent coefficient is recommended rather than a complicated model. Nonlinear regression analysis was performed using experimental results obtained from this study and literature. Through the analysis, simple models were developed. From the standpoint of efficiency and cost, optimum groove sizes are essential for a designer. Based on the database obtained from the current study and literature, the optimum groove dimensions for types of FRP rods were proposed.

Book Description :

The use of prefabricated fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) strips to rehabilitate concrete structures has increased in popularity over the past few years. As such, many design codes and guidelines have been developed to enable designers to use the FRP materials with confidence in their performance. In this work, FRP durability test results are used with a widely known degradation prediction model to determine the value of FRP material properties used in rehabilitation and strengthening of concrete over time. Equations are presented based on the test data to predict the tensile strength, tensile modulus, short beam shear strength, and flexural strength over time of FRP prefabricated strips from three manufacturers. Corresponding degradation data is presented for the adhesive recommended be each manufacturer for use. The degradation model is used on example girders used in previous research by Atadero and Karbhari (1996) for illustration of differences in the codes and guidelines design property values and those possessed by FRP materials over time to demonstrate the use of the time-based reliability factor within the LRFD model presented in an earlier report to Caltrans. A reliability analysis is conducted in each example case to compare the results. A proposed shift in design philosophy is presented to enable inclusion of material degradation over time and thereby make concrete rehabilitation with FRP strips more efficient and cost effective.

Book Description :

The mechanisms by which buildings and infrastructures degrade are complex, as are the procedures and methods for inspection and for rehabilitation. This book examines the various problems caused by non-uniform deformation changes, poor durability, and natural and human disasters such as earthquakes and fire. Attention is given to the causes and mechanisms of the deterioration. General procedures and commonly used techniques for inspection and evaluation of existing infrastructures are introduced. The desk study, destructive test, and non-destructive test are discussed – in particular the newly developed non-destructive methods for deterioration monitoring. The book then moves on to conventional renovation techniques such as patch and steel plate strengthening, which meet the requirements of normal practice. Special attention is paid to compatibility between repair materials and degraded materials. Fibrous composite materials are then introduced as a basis for innovative repair techniques, and different fibre and matrix properties are outlined, as are newly developed inorganic binders as a matrix for fibrous composites. Finally, advanced rehabilitation techniques using fibrous composite are described. Fundamental issues such as bonding and failure mechanisms are then discussed in detail. Fibrous composite strengthening techniques for beam, wall, column and slabs are covered, including shear strengthening, flexural strengthening, and fillet winding, as are codes of practice for retrofitting with fibrous composites. This caters to students and academics world-wide and serves as a "tool book" for concrete and structural engineering professionals.

Book Description :

In December 1996, the then CEB established a Task Group with the main objective to elaborate design guidelines for the use of FRP reinforcement in accordance with the design format of the CEB-FIP Model Code and Eurocode2. With the merger of CEB and FIP into fib in 1998, this Task Group became fib TG 9.3 FRP Reinforcement for concrete structures in Commission 9 Reinforcing and Prestressing Materials and Systems. The Task Group consists of about 60 members, representing most European universities, research institutes and industrial companies working in the field of advanced composite reinforcement for concrete structures, as well as corresponding members from Canada, Japan and USA. Meetings are held twice a year and on the research level its work is supported by the EU TMR (European Union Training and Mobility of Researchers) Network "ConFibreCrete”. The work of fib TG 9.3 is performed by five working parties (WP): Material Testing and Characterization (MT&C) Reinforced Concrete (RC) Prestressed Concrete (PC) Externally Bonded Reinforcement (EBR) Marketing and Applications (M&A) This technical report constitutes the work conducted as of to date by the EBR party. This bulletin gives detailed design guidelines on the use of FRP EBR, the practical execution and the quality control, based on the current expertise and state-of-the-art knowledge of the task group members. It is regarded as a progress report since it is not the aim of this report to cover all aspects of RC strengthening with composites. Instead, it focuses on those aspects that form the majority of the design problems. several of the topics presented are subject of ongoing research and development, and the details of some modelling approaches may be subject to future revisions. as knowledge in this field is advancing rapidly, the work of the EBR WP will continue. Inspite of this limit in scope, considerable effort has been made to present a bulletin that is today’s state-of-art in the area of strengthening of concrete structures by means of externally bonded FRP reinforcement.

Book Description :

In most parts of the developed world, the building stock and the civil infrastructure are ageing and in constant need of maintenance, repair and upgrading. Moreover, in the light of our current knowledge and of modern codes, the majority of buildings stock and other types of structures in many parts of the world are substandard and deficient. This is especially so in earthquake-prone regions, as, even there, seismic design of structures is relatively recent. In those regions the major part of the seismic threat to human life and property comes from old buildings. Due to the infrastructure's increasing decay, frequently combined with the need for structural upgrading to meet more stringent design requirements (especially against seismic loads), structural retrofitting is becoming more and more important and receives today considerable emphasis throughout the world. In response to this need, a major part of the fib Model Code 2005, currently under development, is being devoted to structural conservation and maintenance. More importantly, in recognition of the importance of the seismic threat arising from existing substandard buildings, the first standards for structural upgrading to be promoted by the international engineering community and by regulatory authorities alike are for seismic rehabilitation of buildings. This is the case, for example, of Part 3: Strengthening and Repair of Buildings of Eurocode 8 (i. e. of the draft European Standard for earthquake-resistant design), and which is the only one among the current (2003) set of 58 Eurocodes attempting to address the problem of structural upgrading. It is also the case of the recent (2001) ASCE draft standard on Seismic evaluation of existing buildings and of the 1996 Law for promotion of seismic strengthening of existing reinforced concrete structures in Japan. As noted in Chapter 1 of this Bulletin, fib - as CEB and FIP did before - has placed considerable emphasis on assessment and rehabilitation of existing structures. The present Bulletin is a culmination of this effort in the special but very important field of seismic assessment and rehabilitation. It has been elaborated over a period of 4 years by Task Group 7.1 Assessment and retrofit of existing structures of fib Commission 7 Seismic design, a truly international team of experts, representing the expertise and experience of all the important seismic regions of the world. In the course of its work the team had six plenary two-day meetings: in January 1999 in Pavia, Italy; in August 1999 in Raleigh, North Carolina; in February 2000 in Queenstown, New Zealand; in July 2000 in Patras, Greece; in March 2001 in Lausanne, Switzerland; and in August 2001 in Seattle, Washington. In October 2002 the final draft of the Bulletin was presented to public during the 1st fib Congress in Osaka. It was also there that it was approved by fib Commission 7 Seismic Design. The contents is structured into main chapters as follows: 1 Introduction - 2 Performance objectives and system considerations - 3 Review of seismic assessment procedures - 4 Strength and deformation capacity of non-seismically detailed components - 5 Seismic retrofitting techniques - 6 Probabilistic concepts and methods - 7 Case studies

Book Description :

This book analyses the current knowledge on structural behaviour of RC elements and structures strengthened with composite materials (experimental, analytical and numerical approaches for EBR and NSM), particularly in relation to the above topics, and the comparison of the predictions of the current available codes/recommendations/guidelines with selected experimental results. The book shows possible critical issues (discrepancies, lacunae, relevant parameters, test procedures, etc.) related to current code predictions or to evaluate their reliability, in order to develop more uniform methods and basic rules for design and control of FRP strengthened RC structures. General problems/critical issues are clarified on the basis of the actual experiences, detect discrepancies in existing codes, lacunae in knowledge and, concerning these identified subjects, provide proposals for improvements. The book will help to contribute to promote and consolidate a more qualified and conscious approach towards rehabilitation and strengthening existing RC structures with composites and their possible monitoring.
