Connecting steel to concrete with epoxy / polymer adhesive

Connecting steel to concrete with epoxy / polymer adhesive

Connecting steel to concrete with epoxy / polymer adhesive

I am interested in learning about specific cases of using epoxy or polymer adhesive to connect steel plates to concrete beams........as reinforcement.........particularly seeking information on shear, modulus of elasticity and creep potential........

RE: Connecting steel to concrete with epoxy / polymer adhesive

this very interesting subject. Ofcouse alots of parameters exits and can define.You can get information particularly from www.pieri.com
if you mentioned my name "murat erbas" they will help you very closely.Consult mr.chistian Prost from PIERI.
