Abstract

Now a days natural and manmade disaster like earthquake, cyclone etc., play an important role in the behaviour of structures. Hence the structures has to be designed in a good manner which resists higher seismic and impact forces. Strengthening of existing RC framed buildings for impacting seismic resistance is a challenging engineering problem. Many of the existing buildings are found to have inadequate strength, ductility, or stiffness because they were designed and build when modern seismic requirements did not exist. SIFCON possess high strength, improved ductility, impact resistance and enhanced energy absorption capacity, so it is used as an option for strengthening the conventional reinforced concrete beam. The main thrust of the study has been aimed at characterizing the flexural strength of the beam strengthened with precast SIFCON laminate externally.
