Title
(EN) AXIAL REINFORCEMENT SYSTEM FOR RESTORATIVE SHELL
Abstract
(EN) An axial reinforcement system is disclosed that provides a shell (i.e. a form or jacket) that protects a weight-bearing member (e.g. a cement column) from a corrosive environment and which also substantially increases the structural capacity of the weight-bearing member. The shell is integrated with "positioners" and reinforcing elements the combination of which offers several advantages over conventional shells. The positioner is attached directly to the shell and the positioner is in turn secured to a reinforcing element which can be a reinforced steel such as rebar or a carbon fiber reinforced polymer material. The axial reinforcement system has been found to substantially increase the structural rigidity of the weight-bearing member while at the same time protecting the weight-bearing member from corrosion and is also simple to install.
