Abstract:
With the increasing use of epoxy adhesives in the repair and strengthening of concrete structures, the risk for elevated temperature or fire exposure on epoxy-repaired concrete elements is also increased. The authors have investigated the effects of fire exposure on epoxy-repaired concrete beams, determined the effectiveness of a plaster coating applied to epoxy-repaired beams, and evaluated deflections and strength.
