Abstract
The aim of the present study is to investigate the use of geogrid and geonet as a strengthening material to reinforced structures like beams and slabs. The purpose of this paper is to check if we can reduce the utilization of steel in this rapidly developing world by introducing smart materials such as geogrid and geonet in the reinforcement which can be durable without compensating its strength. Geogrids have been investigated by a limited number of studies as a potential alternative to steel reinforcement for Ordinary Portland cement (PCC) concrete, especially in situations where using steel reinforcement may not be suitable due to constructability and durability limitations. Geonet’s design function is completely within the drainage area where they are used to convey liquids of all types. By introducing it to a reinforced structure we can check its functional ability as a reinforcing material. A total of 15 beams with (1000 mm x 150 mm x 200mm) rectangular cross section and 15 slabs (750 mm x 750 mm x 75 mm) were casted and tested. From total of 15 beams and slabs 3 were control specimens, respectively. With the rest 6 beams and 6 slabs, geogrid and geonet were bonded at bottom of the steel cages of beams and slabs individually. Also, geogrid and geonet were bonded at both bottom and top of the reinforcing steel cage of other 6 beams and slabs individually
