» JUNCTION STRENGTHENING THROUGH CONFINEMENT WITH CARBON FIBRE FABRICS
There is a need to increase the shear strength of the beam and pillar in the point of convergence, in order to restore the proper strength hierarchy between the elements.
By shear wrapping the beam and by wrapping the pillar around its entire perimeter with unidirectional fabric, you can increase the shear strength of the beam and pillar as well as the concrete ductility of the pillar. This would also improve the dissipation capacity of the intersection under seismic action. To reinforce the junction panel it is good practice to bond a quadriaxial fabric sheet ARMOSHIELD C-QUADRAX, by extending it on the webs of the beam and pillar and by turning it up
