Exploratory Assessment of the Effect of PVC Attachments as Repair of RC Beams
(This article belongs to Vol - 01, Issue - 01)
AbstractThe motivation behind this undertaking is to test the adequacy of utilizing polyvinyl chloride (PVC) auxiliary points to build the limit of strengthened cement (RC) bars. Two ½-scale bars with various support designs were stacked to around double the yield dislodging, emptied, and along these lines fixed and reloaded to disappointment. Results show that the PVC connections expanded the limit of the shafts by 10-15%. While the expansion in quality was unobtrusive, it might be adequate for cases in which just minor improvement is important and therefore does not legitimize the surprising expense of other fix systems.
