FLOOR SLAB IN BRICK-CEME Flexural strengthening with carbon fibre plat
» FLOOR SLAB IN BRICK-CEME FLEXURAL STRENGTHENING WITH CARBON FIBRE PLATES
- The floor slab has deficiencies in longitudinal reinforcement caused by a change in load conditions or by a degradation of the initial performances of the material (degradation caused by moisture, fire, etc.).
- The longitudinal reinforcement may be supplemented by the use of pultruded carbon fibre plates, with fibres placed parallel to the axis of the joist, and directly bonded to the restored intrados of each joist making up the floor slab. This operation requires the demolition of the brick bottom of the joist, because the reinforcement needs to be anchored directly to the resistant element.
