The Effect of Fatigue and Creep on Shear-Critical RC Beams Reinforced with CFRP Laminate Stirrups
Matching Research Agency
|Office of the Dean of Engineering, Texas Tech University|
One undergraduate student.
To determine the effect of under strength concrete, fatigue and creep loading on reinforced concrete beams externally reinforced for shear with CFRP strips
This project will benefit State DOT's in their efforts to upgrade transportation infrastructure by quantifying the effects of long-term loading (both static and dynamic) and under strength concrete on bridge beam remediation techniques.
|Upgrading, and Rehabilitation|
Relationship to other Research/Projects
This project uses methodology similar to a current project examining the effect of fatigue loading on CFRP-stiffened wooden box beams
Technology Transfer Activities
A self-contained lecture will be prepared and made available on CD describing the research activity, and progress reports and results will be posted on the UTC website.
