Bond Strength and Stress slip of Lap splice reinforcement with Fiber Reinforced Polymer wrapped and unwrapped concrete beams with the confinement properties. Abstract: This paper describes the experimental results of different researchers to examine the properties and behavior of lap splice reinforcement in a concrete beam. Beam specimens were constructed and tested in the lab. The beam specimen was tested with monotonic (cyclic) and fatigue loading. The beam was divided into three groups: unwrapped, wrapped with glass fiber -reinforced polymer (GFRP) and wrapped with carbon fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP). During the test the different variables were used regarding the presence or absence of FRP wrapping, the types of loading (cyclic …show more content…
The significance is that a correlation needs to be developed to facilitate the introduction of FRP as new materials in the construction of infrastructure. This leads to increase the bond strength of the concrete and steel used in any structural components. Also, the paper will present the comparison of results obtained by different researchers and helps the civil engineer to increase strength and safety of the structure. During the seismic loading, the structural component becomes more critical and shows unusual behavior and fails easily. Therefore, a structural component such as joints, splice joint and a portion having more extreme load should be strengthened with FRP wrapping. It will help to understand how the lap splice can be strengthened by using FRP …show more content…
All the dimensions and cross-section for the beam were same. They were 2,200mm in length ,250 mm in width and 350mm in height as shown in Fig. 1.300mm splice length (minimum as per ACI) was chosen. Each beam was reinforced with 20M steel rebar. GFRP and CFRP were used for the wrapping at the point of the splice. One layer of U-shaped FRP sheet was used with 950 mm. The weights of GFRP and CFRP were 430 g/m2 and 900 g/m2 . The compressive strength of concrete was obtained by testing the 100 *200 mm cylinders which were 42 and 44 Mpa for 28 and 45 days respectively. The beam was tested after 45 days.

    The mixture design that is shown in table 1 is the basic components that will go into each group of concrete. The concrete design shown in table 1 has a designed 28 days compression strength of 40 MPa (5800 psi). With the intention to test the concrete in a shorter time span, the compression was design at 40 MPa at 28 days in order to get a compression strength of 30 MPa after 7 days. This mixture design was determine from using a couple design procedure and also contacting a representative from Sika AG. (Designing and proportioning normal concrete mixtures).…

    To prepare 12 molarity concentration of sodium hydroxide solution, 480 grams (molarity x molecular weight).The mass of NaOH solids was measured as 361 grams per kg of NaOH solution with a concentration of 12 Molar. The sodium hydroxide solution thus prepared is mixed with sodium silicate solution one day before mixing the concrete to get the desired alkaline solution. The solid constituents of the GPCC mix i.e. fly ash, OPC, GGBS and the aggregates were dry mixed in the pan mixer for about three minutes. After dry mixing, alkaline solution was added to the dry mix and wet mixing was done for 4 minutes.…

    On March 1st, 2016, the CEE 3030 Construction Materials class mixed concrete with varying water cement ratios and created three, 3” diameter by 6” high cylinders and three, 6” diameter by 12” high cylinders. The cylinders were cast according to the ASTM C31 standard. The class was divided into sections, then the sections were divided into teams. The sections mirrored each other, and teams created concrete with 0.40, 0.44, 0.48, and 0.52 water cement ratio. Over the next 28 days the cylinders were tested for compressive strength, f’c, unit weight, and resistivity.…

    Estimation of drug content: 10 tablets were finely powdered and quantity of the powder equivalent to 30 mg of lansoprazole was accurately weighed and transferred to 250 ml volumetric flask containing 50 ml of pH 6.8 phosphate buffer and allowed to stand for 8 hour with intermittent shaking to ensure complete solubility of the drug. The solution was then made up to 100ml volume with pH 6.8 phosphate buffer and mixed thoroughly. The solution was filtered, diluted and drug content was estimated by UV spectrophotometer at 260nm.The drug concentration was calculated from the calibration curve…

    AISI 4140 hardened alloy steel at 56 HRC is used and machined with PVD coated ceramic insert. They concluded that higher the work material hardness the higher is the machining force. It is found out that for turning of AISI 4140 steel optimal cutting parameters are cutting speed of 180 m/min, feed rate of 0.08 mm/rev, cut of depth of 0.15 mm and gives surface roughness of Ra= 0.23 micron. [16] S.Chinchanikar et al. [2015] investigated the effect of minimum quantity lubrication (MQL) on hard turning of AISI 4340 steel at 55 HRC using TiSiN-AiAlN coated carbide tool.…

    The overall objective of this lab was to verify Bernoulli-Euler beam theory for the lip-loaded cantilever and use that to calculate the Poisson ratio for the material in this case 6061-T6 aluminum. This was done by having to different objectives for each part of the Lab. Part one was use electrical resistance strain gage, this was to measure the strain a cantilever beam as it undergoes a known deflection. We would then compare the measurements with that of the strains predicted by simple beam theory [1]. The objective for part two was to use two electrical resistance strain gages on the cantilevered beam to measure and calculate the Poisson ratio of the beam.…
