Abstract:

The objective of this investigation was to study, in a limited way, the relative merit of this hypothesis, using an epoxy concrete to replace the portland cement concrete surrounding the lap splice. Six series of test beams of varying length of lap and companion test cylinders were cast. Concrete compressive strength, concrete and epoxy concrete tensile strengths, and relative beam strengths were determined for each test series. A comparison of test results was made with predicted critical lap lengths according to a recently proposed equation. Author
