Flexural strengthening of concrete structures

Flexural strengthening of concrete structures using near surface mounted (NSM) fiber-reinforcements

This research project deals with the importance and effectiveness of Near Surface Mounted (NSM) reinforcement for efficient and economical construction of housing for general mass and for seismic retrofitting /strengthening of masonary and concrete structures. The near surface mounted strengthening technique could be very efficient and practical for flexural strengthening of slabs and beams in negative moment regions. The finding of this research will provide data for development of design approach for the design and construction of low cost structural elements of housing. This particular research proposal has direct relevance to civil engineering in general, concrete technology, structural engineering, material science, construction and management, earthquake engineering, seismic retrofitting and strengthening, and most importantly low cost housing and infrastructures.
