Description

Modelling of Reinforcement Corrosion and Structural Repair and Retrofit using Fibre Reinforced Polymers - Theory to Practice

Bridges, buildings, and many other elements of modern infrastructure are made of reinforced concrete (RC). Although design of RC structures for applied loads is governed by rigorous design rules embodied by design codes and standards, their design for long-term performance and durability is far less rigorous. In practice, few structures fail due to overload while exposure of concrete structures to severe chemical and environmental conditions leads to their premature deterioration. Hence, it is necessary to develop rigorous models for predicting the long-term performance and safety of RC structures under such exposure conditions. In this presentation one such model is presented for predicting steel reinforcement corrosion and the resulting damage caused by corrosion. The presentation also highlights a modern repair and retrofit technique for damaged and deficient RC structures utilizing fibre reinforced polymers. The repair techniques will be discussed based on the provisions of the CSA Standard S806.

Guest Speaker: Dr. A. Ghani Razaqpur, Ph.D., P.Eng., FCSCE, FEIC, FCAE – Professor of Civil Engineering, McMaster University and chair of CSA Standard S806-12: Design and Construction of Building Components with Fibre Reinforced Polymers
