Propriétés mécaniques et comportement des éléments fléchis ayant subi des réparations structurales en béton
|Abstract:||A two-phase research program has been undertaken. In the first phase, computer simulations using a finite-element analysis (FEM) software have been performed to highlight the most sensitive. In the second phase, a series of 12 real-size reinforced concrete beams (3,4 m long) has been cast, air-conditioned and repaired at midspan to different extents, using two formulations of repair self-compacting concrete (high-stiffness and low-stiffness SCC’s), 10 of the 12 beams are repaired beam. The last 2 beams are monolithic beams and used as references. After the installation of the instrumentation, the beams are tested on a 4-point bending setup using two servo-hydraulic actuators, for the measurement of the instantaneous and long-term load deformation. The analysis that follows illustrates the correlation between laboratory results and numerical simulations. The main findings of the study show that using a repair material with a higher stiffness than that of the substrate results in a behavior similar to the monolithic beam. However the use of a material with a lower stiffness tends to negatively affect the behavior of the repaired beam. This trend is more pronounced when considering a sustained load, because the materials with lower stiffness tend to deform more than the rigid materials, it follows that the creep at the young age of the material also affects the behavior of the repaired beams, and that the use of a more rigid material allows the repaired beam to behave like a monolithic beam.
