Design of FRP and Steel Plated RC Structures Retrofitting by Deric Oehlers, Rudolph Seracino

By Deric Oehlers, Rudolph Seracino

There are a wide and ever-increasing variety of buildings and structures world wide which are wanting refurbishment, rehabilitation and strengthening. The retrofitting of beams and slabs for this objective is now famous because the cheapest and environmentally sustainable approach to conducting this crucial protection work.

The authors of Design of FRP and metal Plated RC Structures are either said global specialists on those innovations and their e-book has been designed to supply the reader with a accomplished evaluate of the validated ideas and their purposes in addition to thorough assurance of newly rising methodologies and their makes use of. The comparability of FRP and metal is a specific concentration and the authors offer functional examples of the place one fabric could be utilized in choice to a different. certainly functional, labored examples of ways, whilst, and why particular suggestions were selected in real-world events are used through the textual content and supply the person with important insights into the decision-making procedure and its technical heritage. simply as importantly those examples make the certainty and alertness of those concepts more uncomplicated to appreciate for the scholar and the practitioner. The booklet is foreign in allure, as whereas no reference is made to precise neighborhood codes the authors’ method consistently follows that of the extra complex structural codes world wide. As such it's going to stay a necessary source for a few years to come.

Design of FRP and metal Plated RC constructions is a crucial reference for a huge variety of researchers, scholars and practitioners together with civil engineers and contractors, architects, designers and builders.

  • Contains distinct labored examples all through to assist figuring out and supply technical insight
  • Covers all kinds of steel plates and all kinds of FRP plates
  • Uses layout philosophies that may be used with any mathematical model
  • Provides assurance of all major overseas guidelines

Example text

John Wiley and Sons. Ltd. Chichester, England. 1. It was shown that a crack that intercepts a plate must induce some debonding in the vicinity of the crack to relieve the strain concentrations. This was referred to as IC interface cracking and is of little consequence unless it propagates sufficiently to cause substantial separation of the plate from the concrete which then reduces the strains in the plate. At this stage it is referred to as IC debonding. Intermediate crack (IC) debonding can be considered the dominant mode of debonding as it affects both the flexural strength and ductility of the beam and, as will be shown in Chapters 4 and 5, it affects indirectly the CDC debonding resistance.

17. This local behaviour at the intermediate 34 Design ofFRP and Steel Plated Structures crack is a function of the global variation of Tjnt/8jnt between intermediate cracks, that is the local variation CTIC/5IC at an intermediate crack represents the behaviour between cracks. The CTP,IC/8IC relationship for adhesively plated structures is equivalent to the load/slip relationship of shear connectors in composite steel and concrete beams. Stud shear connectors in composite steel and concrete beams can fail prematurely due to excessive slip and this is the situation with plated beams.

This may be considered as the desired form of failure as most reinforced concrete beams and slabs are designed to fail due to concrete crushing whether they are under-reinforced or over-reinforced. The desired concrete crushing failures shown in Figs. 25 can only be achieved if IC, CDC and PE debonding can be prevented from occurring before the design load to cause concrete crushing. However, this may not always be possible; in which case, it may be necessary to design for either IC or CDC debonding to occur at the design load so that concrete crushing will not occur.
