Carbon Fiber Strengthening of Reinforced Concrete Beam
CAD dwg drawing for Carbon Fiber Strengthening of Reinforced Concrete Beam. Using carbon fibers for reinforcing concrete members can be very useful when there are limitations of the amount of work that can be done on a specific building especially when it is occupied. By using carbon fibers retrofitting existing members can be done within a day minimizing the amount of disturbance that would have normally been caused with other methods of retrofitting.
Even though a bit more expensive, carbon fibers can give the same overall strengthening results as other traditional methods ( i.e. concrete jacketing ). Both moment and shear reinforcement can be very easily achieved by using the correct methodology and application methods and materials as described in this detail.
