Comparison of results:
The ICR.IAS JV has partnered with the University of Western Australia to conduct research on using our composite repair system, TechnowrapTM , on an I-Beam to reinstate the integrity of the structure.
Multiple beam test pieces had a 300mm section removed from the centre in order to simulate a loss of steel. In total four (4) beams were tested:
(1) I-Beam intact with no sectional loss
(2) I-Beam with 300mm section loss
(3) I-Beam with 300mm sectional loss repaired with 8 layers of TechnowrapTM SRS (Carbon Fibre)
(4) I-Beam with 300mm sectional loss repaired with 8 layers of TechnowrapTM 2K (Glass Fibre)
