Abstract or Summary
  • Long-term durability of surface-bonded carbon fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP) for shear strengthening of reinforced concrete (RC) bridge members remains uncertain due to the limited field experience with these materials. This paper provides experimental results from the testing of full-scale RC bridge girder specimens after exposure to prolonged environmental exposure and combined action of freeze-thaw + repeated service loads. CFRP shear contributions seen in experimental results were estimated using a refined base capacity prediction (Response-2000) and compared to predicted CFRP shear contributions (ACI-440). The IT specimens did not exhibit strength reductions due to moisture exposure, instead the presence of continuous water exposure for the relatively young concrete caused higher concrete tensile properties resulting in increased bond strength. Previous research showed CFRP strengthened T specimens with freeze-thaw exposure exhibited lower shear capacity than similar unexposed CFRP strengthened T specimen. But the current research demonstrated that if the beam is well protected against moisture infiltration at the strip termination, the beam will be less susceptible to freeze-thaw bond deterioration. The orientations of specimens during repair and during exposure are important considerations for environmental durability. The CFRP strip terminations should be focused on during installation to insure well and perhaps extra saturation even past the CFRP material to limit moisture infiltration along this edge.
