Micro Concrete Jacketing
Jacketing the Structural Components
Jacketing is the process by which additional materials are added to the existing structure so as to make it strong. This will result in strength while the structure becomes durable.
DIfferent types of Jacketing
The different types of Jacketing include
- Column jacketing
Jacketing of reinforced columns increases its capacity. It increases the shear and axial strength of columns.
- Concrete Jacketing
Concrete jacketing is applied to concrete structures. It increases the capacity of concrete structures to withstand the load.
- Beam Jacketing
Beam relates to the continuity in columns, and the beam jacketing strengthens the columns with the aid of a beam.
The beam jacketing safeguards the structure against many mishaps like
- Design errors
- Concrete deficiency
- Earthquakes or environmental factors.
Fiber reinforced polymer is successful in shear strengthening of confined structure. Useful for seismic activities.
