The average gain in the load capacity of the strengthened specimen was approximately 40% higher than that of the unstrengthened specimen.
In this research, unstrengthened specimen was fabricated as a reference specimen.
One beam was considered as unstrengthened control beam, while the remaining beams were strengthened with 18 or 22 mm steel bars.
In addition, the CFRP plates also improved the first-cracking and steel-yielding load compared to the unstrengthened control beam B0, indicating that the prestressed CFRP plates with the proposed anchorage system can significantly contribute to an increase of strength as well as member serviceability.
He questioned the quality of the players who had arrived - which is extraordinary - and even went as far as saying he "didn't know" if the unstrengthened squad was good enough to stay up.
It was found that hydrothermal ageing caused a significant reduction in the capacity strength of the bonded interfaces for specimens strengthened with CFS and CFRP compared to the unstrengthened concrete slabs.
Both models, including the strengthened one and the unstrengthened one, were similarly instrumented, and the details of instrumentation were presented in Figure 5.
External ball bearing impact experiments showed that as unstrengthened glass laminates became thinner, a fundamental shift in failure mode occurred, and there was an increased prevalence of fracture of the interior ply due to biaxial fexure.
Strengthening after an unstressed syllable is not consistent, forms with a strengthened consonant often occur side by side with forms with an unstrengthened consonant.
The deformation of strut in unstrengthened and CFRP-strengthened D-region was evaluated by measuring the average values of strains along and perpendicular to the strut centreline.
In addition to the total ultimate load, this is the ratio of the ultimate load of a strengthened beam to that of the corresponding unstrengthened control beam.
Drawings of specimens are given in Figure 1, and the list of wall specimen's types is: a) Unreinforced (unstrengthened) masonry (URM) walls (1/1, 1/2, 1/3); b) Walls reinforced with steel wires (2/1, 2/2, 2/3); d) Walls strengthened with horizontal and diagonal glass fiber straps (4/1, 4/2, 4/3); e) Walls strengthened with horizontal glass fiber straps at the wall surface (5/1, 5/2, 5/3) and f) Wall strengthened with wrapped glass fiber fabric glued at the wall surfaces (6/1).
