A strengthening system: international patent for innovative structural strengthening using externally prestressed fibre wraps

Aravinthan, Thiru (2007) A strengthening system: international patent for innovative structural strengthening using externally prestressed fibre wraps. .


Abstract

This invention relates to a strengthening system for a concrete beam and a method of strengthening a concrete beam.
In particular, the invention relates to repairing concrete beams having flexural or shear cracks and therefore will be described in this context. However, it should be appreciated that the reinforcement system may be used on concrete beams to assist in the prevention of the formation of cracks. The technique may be extended to other elements other than concrete beams.
