SMARTREINFORCEMENT – Carbon fibre laminates for the strengthening and monitoring of reinforced concrete structures

2011-11-25

Title: SMARTREINFORCEMENT – Carbon fibre laminates for the strengthening and monitoring of reinforced concrete structures

Reference: ADI/2007/V4.1/0052

Description: Manufacture carbon fibre laminates that includes optical fiber sensors; characterize the early and long term behaviour of these laminates, under distinct ageing conditions; evaluate the bond conditions of these laminates to the concrete substrate, when applied according to the NSM strengthening technique; assess the performance of these laminates when applied for the flexural and shear strengthening; implement into the FEMIX computer program the necessary routines to simulate the constructive phases of the strengthening process; develop design guidelines for the shear and flexural strengthening of RC structures using this type of laminates.

Date: July 2007 to June 2008
