In this paper a finite element model for predicting shear and normal stresses in the adhesive layer of plated reinforced concrete beams has been developed. The numerical results carried out agree with those obtained in previous studies by other authors. It is found that shear stresses and high concentrations of peeling forces are present at the ends of the plates when the composite beam is loaded in flexure. These concentrations can produce premature failure of the strengthened beam because of debonding of the plate or cracking of the concrete cover along the level of internal steel reinforcement. The numerical simulation captures the actual interfacial stresses and, in particular, the maximum values of shear and normal stresses

Abstract

In this paper a finite element model for predicting shear and normal stresses in the adhesive layer of plated reinforced concrete beams has been developed. The numerical results carried out agree with those obtained in previous studies by other authors. It is found that shear stresses and high concentrations of peeling forces are present at the ends of the plates when the composite beam is loaded in flexure. These concentrations can produce premature failure of the strengthened beam because of debonding of the plate or cracking of the concrete cover along the level of internal steel reinforcement. The numerical simulation captures the actual interfacial stresses and, in particular, the maximum values of shear and normal stresses
