Anchor Design to Prevent Debonding of Repair Mortar in Repaired Concrete Members

Reinforced concrete beams or slabs are often strengthened or repaired using polymer modified cement concrete Stresses can develop in the structure by ambient temperature changes because thermal coefficients of the repair material and the existing concrete are typically different. Especially, shear stress often causes debonding of the interface. In this study, a rational procedure was developed where anchors can be designed in strengthened or repaired concrete members to prevent debonding at the interface. The current design procedure considers thicknesses and elastic moduli of the repair material and existing concrete, ambient temperature change, length, and beam-vs.-slab action. The procedure is also applicable to stresses developed by differential drying shrinkage.
