Beam Strengthening Using Honeycomb Plates
Damages occurs in reinforced concrete structure due to labor defect, material imperfections, external conditions
and earthquakes. The structural elements such as beam and columns are need to be strengthened. The most common method
used to strengthen the beam is attaching steel plates to beam. In this study honeycomb plates is used to strengthen beam. A
reinforced concrete beam is modeled and solved with finite element analysis and compared with a beam joined with
