Rehabilitation of reinforced concrete beams by the use of bonded steel plates

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Strengthening existing concrete members using externally bonded steel plates (BSP) is an effective method o f enhancing both serviceability and ultimate strength o f concrete members. In recent years, several BSP field applications, for both building and bridges, have been reported in many countries. In addition, extensive experimental and theoretical investigations o f the factors influencing the structural performance o f epoxy bonded plated concrete beams have been reported by many researchers. This paper presents a review o f the previous research on the structural behavior o f composite steel plated concrete beams. An overview o f the effectiveness o f the bonded plate on the serviceability, strength and mode o f failure o f strengthened reinforced concrete beams is presented.
