This seminar for the more experienced and advanced level attendee will include brief overviews of the strengthening process, the design process for reinforced and post-tensioned concrete and typical signs/causes of structural distress. Strengthening techniques including section enlargement, external post-tensioning and post-tension repairs, precast connection repairs, steel plate bonding and FRP will provide attendees with a tool box of options when it comes to strengthening. Finally, considerations for technique selection regarding features, benefits, limitations, design, fire resistance, durability, materials, installation techniques, costs and case studies will round out discussions.
- Recognize potential structural deficiencies that require strengthening
- Compare potential available strengthening techniques for a particular problem
- Explore about strengthening column-slab junctions, shear collars, supplemental reinforcing, column and beam strengthening, post -tensioning tendon repairs, fire damage repair and strengthening with fiber-reinforced polymers
