Retrofitting of Reinforced Concrete structural elements - Recent Technologies and Future Scope

Authors(3) :-Janni Yamini Sudha, Ch. Chadra Mouli, P Markandeya Raju

The retrofitting of concrete structures has become increasingly important in view aging and more deterioration of infrastructure. The problem is more severe due to optimized technologies for construction. Many expansive methods are available for retrofit ting structures and choice of suitable method/material is a challenge to a structural engineer. Retrofitting is the Science and Technology of strengthening the existing structures or structural elements to enhance their performance with new technology, features and components. Retrofitting of an existing reinforced concrete structure includes either repair, rehabilitation (or) strengthening terms. The term retrofit is used if the damaged structure performance was satisfying than before with some additional resistance then the term retrofit will be representative. Now a day’s many researchers have proposed many materials, methods and techniques for strengthening flexure deficient RC beams. The studies performed on the flexure retrofitted RC beams using traditional method like stitching (Hook Method) are studied. Further it is required to study the relative effect of these techniques on flexure carrying capacity of flexure deficient beams by retrofitting.
