The use of deicing salts on highway bridges has decreased the service life of bridge decks due to the accelerated corrosion of the steel reinforcement. The use of Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer (GFRP) in bridge decks as a means of corrosion-mitigation has been met with some success; however, GFRP is...

 

This report presents the feasibility of a novel anchor system that mitigates the end-peeling of carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) sheets used for strengthening reinforced concrete beams. Contrary to conventional anchoring methods, CFRP sheets are embedded inside the pre-grooved concrete and covered...

 

This report presents a research program studying the grooved bonding schemes of composite sheets (carbon fiber reinforced polymer, CFRP) for rehabilitating concrete members. The first phase of the research presents the efficacy of functional periodicity on controlling the occurrence of interfacial failure...

 

This report presents a two-phase research program studying i) galvanic current influencing deterioration of carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) sheets bonded to a steel substrate and ii) electrochemical reaction for steel beams strengthened with CFRP. The first phase of the research presents an experimental...

 

This report presents an initial investigation of the mechanics of I-beams developed with plastic-aluminum composite technology. Plastic-aluminum composites in structural beam/frame/truss elements are a relatively new concept that has seen little, if any, application in modern construction. This technology...

 

This report describes research performed in coordination with work at the University of Stuttgart, attempting to establish the S-N curve for fatigue loading of notched wood-concrete connections based on low/high-cycle, repeated loading tests. Experimental results are obtained on fourteen 1524 mm span...

 

The present research suggests a new approach to the use of composite materials technology for repair of timber structural members. Due to the small aspect ratio of the typical railroad bridge span timbers, stiffness degradation can be related to decrease in the beam's shear performance. To rejuvenate...
