Abstract:
Reinforced Concrete viaducts of the Tohoku Shinkansen suffered considerable damage especially in mid-height beams due to the Miyagi-ken-oki Earthquake (1978), and there were quite a number that would not have been able to withstand normal use without remedy. In this study the strength-deformation characteristics of 1/2- or l/3-scale model specimens of rigid-frame viaduct mid-height beams are obtained experimentally, and the bending shear characteristics of mid-height beams are examined. Further, various repair methods are applied to specimens loaded to different levels with crack width or displacement as the yardstick, and the effects are investigated. As a result, it is confirmed that member yielding load, resisting capacity, deformability, etc., are not less than those of the original member if repairs are made properly by injecting epoxy resin in cracked parts.
