  1. 1. FRP shear strengthening of RC beams and walls

    Author : Gabriel Sas; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Structural Engineering; Konstruktionsteknik;

    Abstract : The shear failure of Fibre Reinforced Polymers (FRP) strengthened reinforced concrete (RC) beams has not been studied to the same extent as the bending failure mechanism in the past decade. The complex nature of the shear failure mechanism just for reinforced concrete beams is still under debate among scientists and not solved yet. READ MORE

  2. 2. FRP shear strengthening of reinforced concrete beams

    Author : Gabriel Sas; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; fiber reinforced polymers; shear; reinforced concrete; strengthening; model; comparison; literature review; Civil engineering and architecture - Building engineering; Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur - Byggnadsteknik; Structural Engineering; Konstruktionsteknik;

    Abstract : The shear failure mechanisms of flexural reinforced concrete (RC) members is highly complex; its precise details cannot be explained with simple analytical relationships, and are the topic of considerable scientific debate. The studies described and examined the three most used shear theories in the world – the fixed angle truss model (45°TM), the variable angle truss model (VAT), and modified compression field theory (MCFT).

  3. 3. CFRP Strengthening of Cut-Out Openings in Concrete Walls – Analysis and Laboratory Tests

    Author : Cosmin Popescu; Björn Täljsten; Gabriel Sas; Thomas Blanksvärd; Stijn Matthys; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Structural Engineering; Konstruktionsteknik;

    Abstract : Redesigning buildings to improve their space efficiency and allow changes in use is often essential during their service lives to comply with shifts in living standards and functional demands.This may require the introduction of new openings in elements such as beams, walls, and slabs,which inevitably reduces their structural performance and hence requires repair or strengthening.

  4. 4. FRCM-Composites for Strengthening Concrete Walls with Openings : Experimental and Numerical Analysis

    Author : Cristian Sabau; Björn Täljsten; Thomas Blanksvärd; Gabriel Sas; Cosmin Popescu; Thanasis C. Triantafillou; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; FRCM; reinforced concrete; walls; openings; strenghtening; Structural Engineering; Konstruktionsteknik;

    Abstract : Upgrading existing buildings to new functional requirements may require new openings that can weaken the structure, prompting the need for strengthening. In such cases, traditional strengthening solutions, such as creating a reinforced concrete or steel frame around the opening, imply long-term restrictions in the use of the structure. READ MORE
