Abstract

The Deep Embedment (DE) technique is an innovative shear-enhancement retrofit technique for concrete structures that requires introduction of Fibre-Reinforced Polymer (FRP) or Steel bars upwards into vertical or inclined holes which have been drilled through the beam section. An experimental campaign consisting of ten two-span continuous reinforced concrete T-beams designed to fail in shear is presented. Results from these experiments have extended our current knowledge on the behaviour of continuous beams strengthened in shear by the DE technique. This paper provides a brief overview of the results obtained.
