Title: SP-165: Repair and Strengthening of Concrete Members with Adhesive Bonded Plates
Author(s): Editors: R. Narayan Swami and Robert Gaul
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 264
The ACI Technical Session "Repair and Strengthening with Adhesive Bonded Plates" was held in Washington, D C on March 15-16, 1992. The papers presented at the technical session and the additional papers included in this special publication provide the first comprehensive publication of information on this subject in the United States. The papers cover research, design, construction methods, and case histories. The research described includes not only theoretical analysis and short-term experimental programs but also test programs that involve long-term outdoor exposure. research in the use of fiber reinforced plastic plates instead of the more commonly used steel plates is also described. The design papers illustrate practical engineering approaches and include details of anchoring plates, effect of plate dimensions, adhesive performance, and temperature limitations. Construction methods described include preparation of the plates, application of adhesive, and installation of the plates. The case histories provide a broad and historical view of the use of adhesive bonded plates to strengthen buildings and civil engineering structures.
