English term or phrase:composite concrete structures
Increasing traffic loads combined with de-icing salts and repeated freeze-thaw cycles have caused extensive damage to concrete bridge decks in Sweden and abroad. The deteriorated part of the concrete bridge deck has to be removed and replaced by a new concrete topping. To ensure full structural interaction between old and new concrete it is necessary to have good bond between them.
The load-bearing capacity of a repaired concrete bridge deck ought to be at least as high as the capacity of the originally undamaged structure. Differential shrinkage is an additional loading case to be considered for a composite concrete structure such as a repaired concrete bridge deck consisting of concrete cast at two different times. Differential shrinkage is the difference between shrinkage strains of new and existing concrete.
gracias, pero necesito alguna referencia. Google sólo encuentra una docena de referencias de hormigón compuesto así que me temo que no será esa la colocación. Creo que lo voy a dejar como hormigón. 1 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
