Type of operation of the reinforced brick columns

Building constructions, buildings and structures

Research objective – studying of character work of a stone laying on the example of brick columns with various options of reinforcing and also definition of extent of coupling of woven composite materials with masonry solution. The relevance of use of woven composite materials as the reinforcing material is described. The main advantages of woven composite materials are specified. Pilot studies with application of samples of brick columns are conducted. The experiment by definition of coupling of the reinforcing layer with masonry solution is executed. The additional actions providing increase in coupling of fiber glass fabric and solution are described. The analysis of the results received on the basis of calculations and experiments for determination of durability on compression of brick columns is made. Conclusions about applicability of the offered system of reinforcing are formulated.
