Behavior of Short Span Composite Beams Strengthened with CFRP Strips
Engineering and Technology Journal,
2010, Volume 28, Issue 1, Pages 103-118
AbstractThe experimental program in this paper is divided into two groups: the first
one consists of seven composite beams; six of them were strengthened with one
and two CFRP strips and with three different percentages of full beam length
(40%, 60%, and 100%). The second group consists of five composite beams
strengthened at the face of the bottom flange with CFRP strips fastened to the steel
section by steel bolts with two different length proportion of CFRP strips to beam
soffit (60%, and 100%).
The analytical investigation included the use of three dimensional
nonlinear finite elements to model the performance of the composite beams using
(ANSYS 8.0) computer program.
