The Steel-Reinforced Grout (SRG) jacketing system is local intervention method which comprises composite fabrics that consist of high strength steel cords embedded in an inorganic matrix. The new composite system is simple and fast in its application and has been successfully applied for confinement of plain and reinforced concrete (RC), shear strengthening of beams and strengthening of RC columns with old-type detailing.
In this presentation, the information related to the confinement effectiveness of the SRG jackets, the strength and deformation capacity increase observed in the experimental studies and the capability of the proposed method in preventing premature failure of RC structural members with substandard detailing will be presented.
