The Effectiveness of the Resin Injection Repair Method for Cracked RC Beams

The effectiveness of the method of resin injection in restoring the structural integrity of crack-damaged rein forced concrete beams was investigated. Fourteen beams that had been tested previously under static loading in a study into the performance of patch repair materials' were resin injected. The beams were evaluated under three load systems, one static and two cyclic. Three of the beams were submerged in water at 38 °C for 4 months before being tested. Twenty-five cores were taken from the beams to study injected cracks under a microscope. A.I. Abu-Tair, S.R. Rigden and E. Burley
