Numerical Modelling of Retrofitted Reinforced Concrete Building Frames
This study presents an overview and investigates the adequacy of the retrofit concept used in the reinforced concrete building frame of a distressed office building complex. The retrofit assessed consists of steel members welded together to form a steel frame with a reinforced concrete beam as base, acting as support for two floor slabs and roof truss of the building. Reinforced concrete...
