Abstract: This article concerns the repair and reinforcement of sewage structures using composite plates.
Tests were performed to characterise the interface, using prisms reinforced with pultruded carbon fibre-based plates in different environments (normal, water-saturated, submerged).
The prisms were then subjected to four-point bending to study the behaviour of the concrete/adhesive/composite interface and to obtain the intrinsic properties of the materials.
A finite-element analysis was performed to reproduce the behaviour of the reinforced prisms.
The results of these numerical calculations were then compared with the experimental tests.
