Correspondence on Plate Separation and Anchorage of Reinforced Concrete Beams Strengthened Epoxy-Bonded Steel Plates by Mr. R. Jones, Dr. R.N. Swamy and Dr. A. Charif

Dr. T. M. Roberts (M) (University College, Cardiff): The authors are to be congratulated for continuing to provide detailed experimental data on the structural performance of reinforced concrete beams, strengthened by epoxy-bonded steel plates. However, I wish to draw attention to what I believe to be an erroneous conclusion, based on an oversimplistic elastic analysis, that ‘theoretical stresses based on simple elastic theory bear no consistent relationship to the measurement values’.
