Abstract

The strengthening of concrete structures with laminates of carbon fibers CFRP (Carbon Fibers Reinforced Polymer) began in the 1980s. Nowdays, this technology is one of the most promising one because of the good mechanical properties of laminates and their easy hand-work. Laminates [...]

Abstract

Ultra High Performance Strain Hardening Cementitious Composites (UHP-SHCC) are useful for strengthening or repairing concrete members. However there is a need to use refined analytical tools to simulate response of strengthened system. In this study, ABAQUS finite element program [...]
