Evaluation of Long Carbon Fiber Reinforced Concrete to Mitigate Earthquake Damage of Infrastructure Components

The proposed study involves investigating long carbon fiber reinforced concrete as a method of mitigating earthquake damage to bridges and other infrastructure components. Long carbon fiber reinforced concrete has demonstrated significant resistance to impact and blast loading. The carbon fibers will potentially reduce spalling and the degree of cracking during an earthquake event as well as increase the overall structural capacity. The scope of the research project includes testing of carbon fibers, development of a fiber-concrete composite material, and dynamic testing to evaluate the response of the material.
