Project: Experimental and numerical investigation of the fire resistance of concrete members strenghtened with carbon fibre composite laminates.

project duration
01-JAN-99 – 31-DEC-02
Strenghtening of concrete structures by means of carbon fibre composite laminates is a technique which is in full development nowadays. For applications in buildings, a minimum fire resistance is required. In the research project, the fire resistance is evaluated by means of experiments (fire tests) and it is investigated how it can be improved.
