Torsional Strengthening of RC Beams with Continuous Spiral

Feb 21,  · The strength of reinforced concrete members can be enhanced using externally bonded reinforcement (EBR) and near surface mounted (NSM) methods. However, small number of studies has adopted the NSM method for torsional strengthening. To date, no study has examined the use of spiral NSM steel wire rope and epoxy adhesives for torsional strengthening. Therefore, this study examines

Torsional Behavior Design of UHPC Box Beams Based on Thin

This study proposed a prediction formula for the torsional strength enabling to reflect the tensile strength of ultra high performance concrete (UHPC) beams based upon the thin-walled tube theory. The remarkable ductile behavior of UHPC can also be attributed to the steel fiber reinforcement. This feature must be considered to provide rational explanation of the torsional behavior of UHPC

Fcu and ft are determined by using a pull-off type adhesion test. It may become necessary to remove thin layers of the concrete substrate and repeat the pull-off test in the case where test results failed to meet the preceding acceptable values. This process may be repeated, up until a sound concrete substrate surface is reached. In the case that the acceptable strength values given in this

Experiments on the strength of reinforced and prestressed

The torsional strength of concrete can be augmented by suitable shear reinforcement. The resistance of the reinforced concrete beams to torsion, however, still depends on the tensile strength of the concrete; it is not therefore possible to gain an increase in strength comparable with that resulting from the addition of tension reinforcement to

Torsional strengthening of reinforced concrete box beams

In current practice, torsional strengthening of concrete members is achieved by one of the following methods : (1) increasing the member cross-sectional area combined with adding of transverse reinforcement, (2) using externally bonded steel plates and pressure grouting the gap between plate and concrete element, and (3) applying an axial load to the member by post-tensioning. Although these methods will continue to be used in many more instances, fiber reinforced
