Structural interventions with resins tissues and pultruded
The renovation and seismic retrofit works are still in progress in schools all over Italy. This time we will focus on the seismic retrofit of the school "Cesare Vecellio" gym in Lentiai, in the province of Belluno. The intervention, made using Kimia FRP reinforcing systems, has been planned by the Engineering Studio Dal Pont & Dal Sasso.
The structural strengthening, renovation and seismic retrofit of r.c. roof and walls have been carried out as follows:
Structural strengthening of the walls with carbon fiber mesh has been carried out on the internal and external surface. In order to ensure a satisfactory strength of the reinforcement, connections were made with carbon rods Kimitech TONDO CB and Kimitech Fiocco CB, impregnated with epoxy resin Kimitech EP-IN.
Inside the holes the tixothropic two-component adhesive Kimitech EP-TX has been injected.
The steps for the repairing of concrete masonry cracks are listed below:
