Basics for determining amounts and the design of optimized carbon fiber.
During the analysis process in the design of project where you will be using carbon fiber the more importantly determine the justification of why is to be performed such reinforcement, either by:
- Deficit of steel armor.
- Poor quality of concrete.
- Increase load.
- Change rules of construction.
- There is usually a pre-analysis, where efforts or amounts to cover steel with carbon fiber are determined. Information that is used by the Engineering Department to develop a project with optimized carbon fiber.
To structural design, the regulations used in Latinamerica are ACI 440.
