ACCEPTANCE CRITERIA FOR MASONRY AND CONCRETE STRENGTHENING USING FIBER-REINFORCED CEMENTITIOUS MATRIX (FRCM) COMPOSITE SYSTEMS AC434

Approved October 2011

PREFACE Evaluation reports issued by ICC Evaluation Service, LLC (ICC-ES), are based upon performance features of the International family of codes. (Some reports may also reference older code families such as the BOCA National Codes, the Standard Codes, and the Uniform Codes.) Section 104.11 of the International Building Code® reads as follows: The provisions of this code are not intended to prevent the installation of any materials or to prohibit any design or method of construction not specifically prescribed by this code, provided that any such alternative has been approved. An alternative material, design or method of construction shall be approved where the building official finds that the proposed design is satisfactory and complies with the intent of the provisions of this code, and that the material, method or work offered is, for the purpose intended, at least the equivalent of that prescribed in this code in quality, strength, effectiveness, fire resistance, durability and safety. This acceptance criteria has been issued to provide interested parties with guidelines for demonstrating compliance with performance features of the codes referenced in the criteria. The criteria was developed through a transparent process involving public hearings of the ICC-ES Evaluation Committee, and/or on-line postings where public comment was solicited. New acceptance criteria will only have an “approved” date, which is the date the document was approved by the Evaluation Committee. When existing acceptance criteria are revised, the Evaluation Committee will decide whether the revised document should carry only an “approved” date, or an “approved” date combined with a “compliance” date. The compliance date is the date by which relevant evaluation reports must comply with the requirements of the criteria. See the ICC-ES web site for more information on compliance dates. If this criteria is a revised edition, a solid vertical line (│) in the margin within the criteria indicates a technical change from the previous edition. A deletion indicator () is provided in the margin where wording has been deleted if the deletion involved a technical change. ICC-ES may consider alternate criteria for report approval, provided the report applicant submits data demonstrating that the alternate criteria are at least equivalent to the criteria set forth in this document, and otherwise demonstrate compliance with the performance features of the codes. ICC-ES retains the right to refuse to issue or renew any evaluation report, if the applicable product, material, or method of construction is such that either unusual care with its installation or use must be exercised for satisfactory performance, or if malfunctioning is apt to cause injury or unreasonable damage. NOTE: The Preface for ICC-ES acceptance criteria was revised in July 2011 to reflect changes in policy.

Acceptance criteria are developed for use solely by ICC-ES for purpose of issuing ICC-ES evaluation reports. Copyright© 2011

FRCM shall be applied on both sides of the wall with primary fiber strands oriented perpendicular to the applied shear force. Fiber strands shall not have a misalignment of more than 5 degrees.

where Af is the area of the grid reinforcement by unit width effective in shear, n is the number of layers of grid reinforcement, and L is the length of the wall in the direction of the applied shear force. The strength reduction factor for shear, ᶲv, is equal to 0.75. A minimum development length of 6 inches (152 mm) shall be considered.

where Mn is the nominal flexural strength; Mm and Mf are the contribution of the reinforced masonry and the FRCM composite material to the nominal flexural strength, respectively. In the case of unreinforced masonry, only the term Mf is considered. The strength reduction factor for flexure, ᶲm, is equal to 0.6 for both reinforced and unreinforced masonry.

8.2.2.1 Limitations: To limit the total force per unit width transferred to the masonry, the increment in shear strength provided by the FRCM reinforcement shall not exceed 50 percent of the capacity of the structure without strengthening for both unreinforced and conventionally reinforced masonry walls. Strengthening is limited to maximum wall thickness of 12 inches (305 mm).

For the computation of Mn, when the FRCM composite material is applied on both sides of the wall, the contribution of FRCM in the compression side is neglected. FRCM application does not contribute to the enhancement of the nominal out-of-plane shear strength of the masonry wall which shall be calculated according to TMS 402. A minimum development length of 6 inches (152 mm) shall be considered.

Concrete:

8.3.1 Flexural Strength Enhancement of Reinforced Concrete Members: The FRCM composite material bonded to surfaces of reinforced concrete members may be used to enhance the design flexural strength of sections by acting as external tension reinforcement. In such cases, section analysis shall be based on the following normal assumptions: (a) plane sections remain plane after loading; (b) the bond between the FRCM and the substrate remains effective; (c) the maximum usable compressive strain in the concrete is 0.003; (d) FRCM has a linear elastic behavior to failure.

8.2.1.1 Limitations: In the case of unreinforced masonry, when subjected to out-of-plane loading, the wall behaves as a simply supported element or very nearly so, and the influence of wall arching mechanisms can be neglected. An arching mechanism can potentially develop in a wall with a height-to-thickness (H/t) ratio of less than 8 when the wall is built between stiff supports. The influence of arching in the out-of-plane behavior decreases for walls with H/t ratios greater than 14. As a reference, Tables 7-5 and 7-10 of ASCE 41 provide H/t ratios where an unreinforced masonry wall does not need to be analyzed for out-of-plane seismic forces and, therefore, does not require strengthening. For conventionally reinforced masonry walls, to limit the total force per unit width transferred to the masonry, the increment in flexural strength provided by the FRCM reinforcement shall not exceed 50 percent of the capacity of the structure without strengthening.

The flexural strength of a reinforced concrete section depends on the controlling failure mode. Failure modes for an FRCM-strengthened section include:

Crushing of the concrete in compression before yielding of the reinforcing steel.

Yielding of the steel in tension followed by concrete crushing.

8.2.2 Shear Strength Enhancement: The FRCM composite material bonded to surfaces of masonry may be used to enhance the design shear strength in the plane of the wall by acting as shear reinforcement.

Annex A Tensile Testing of Fiber-reinforced Cementitious Matrix (FRCM) Composite Specimens A1.0 Summary of Test Method A thin flat strip of material having a near-constant rectangular cross section is mounted in the grips of a mechanical testing machine and loaded with monotonically increasing load in tension while recording load and movement. The ultimate strength of the material can be determined from a maximum load carried before failure. The coupon strain or elongation is monitored with displacement transducers to determine the nominal stress-strain response of the material, and from that the cracking stress and strain, ultimate tensile strain, tensile modulus of elasticity before and after cracking of cement-based matrix can be derived. This test procedure is designed to produce tensile property data for material specifications, quality assurance, and structural design and analysis. Factors that influence the tensile response and shall therefore be reported include the following: material, methods of material preparation and lay-up, specimen preparation, specimen conditioning, environment of testing, specimen alignment and gripping, and speed of testing. Properties, in the test direction, which may be obtained from this test include: 1.

Ultimate tensile strength

2.

Ultimate tensile strain

3.

Tensile modulus of elasticity of uncracked specimen

4.

Tensile modulus of elasticity of cracked specimen

5.

Transition point

Attention shall be paid to material and specimen preparation, gripping, and test system alignment. Poor material fabrication practices, lack of control in alignment of fiber grid, and damage induced by improper cutting and machining the coupons are known causes of high material data scatter. Specimen gripping problems can also cause a high percentage of grip-influenced failures and therefore more scatter in data. Every effort shall be made to eliminate excess bending due to system misalignment and out-of-tolerance conditions caused by poor specimen preparation. A2.0 Apparatus A2.1 Dimension Measurements: The accuracy of instruments used for measuring dimensions of the test specimens shall be suitable for reading to within 1 percent of the sample dimensions. A2.2 Testing Machine: The testing machine shall be in conformance with Practices ASTM E 4. The testing machine shall have both an essentially stationary head and a movable head. The drive mechanism shall be capable of imparting to the movable head a controlled velocity with respect to the stationary head. The testing machine load sensing device shall be able to indicate the applied load to the specimen within 1 percent of the indicated value. Each head of the testing machine shall carry one grip for holding the test specimen in coincident with the longitudinal axis of the specimen. The grips shall apply sufficient lateral pressure to prevent slippage between the grip face and the coupon. It is desirable to use grips that are rotationally self-aligning to minimize bending stresses in the coupon. A.2.3 Strain Indicating Device: An extensometer satisfying Practice ASTM E 83, Class B-1 requirements can be used for strain/elongation measurement. A minimum gage length of 2 inches (50 mm) shall be used. Since the coupon undergoes cracking in the early stages of loading, the gage length shall be adequate to at least include within itself one transverse crack. The bearing points of the extensometer on the coupon shall not be disturbed by cracking. If cracking occurs at the bearing points, the specimen shall be unloaded and extensometer moved. The discontinuity in elongation reading can be removed in data reduction process by matching the stop and restart point or similar means. The weight of extensometer shall not cause significant bending in the specimen. A3.0 Test Specimens At least five specimens shall be tested per test condition. Specimens can be cut from larger panels laid up in special molds. Control of fiber grid alignment is critical in lay-up procedure. Effective cutting tools and methods need to used, and precautions shall be taken to avoid notches, undercuts, uneven surfaces, or delaminations. The specimen preparation method shall be reported. Specimens shall be labeled properly to be distinct from each other and traceable to the raw material. The test specimens shall be rectangular coupons. The thickness of coupons shall be as required and be a function of number of layers and thickness of matrix for each layer. The width of the coupon shall be adequate to include a minimum number of strands (e.g., three3 strands in each layer) and shall not be less than four times the thickness of the specimen. The width shall also be kept as a multiple of the grid spacing. Also, in case the strands in different layers are staggered with respect to each other, it is preferable to have the same number of strands in each layer along the width of the coupon. The minimum length of the coupon shall include gripping distance, plus twice the width plus gage length. Longer lengths are preferred to minimize the bending effects on the specimen. Metallic tabs (e.g., steel, aluminum) are recommended for gripping to avoid damage to the specimen by grips. The tabs can be glued to the specimen ends (two at each end, one at each face). The tabs shall have the same width as the coupon. The tab length can be calculated based on the maximum expected tensile load, glue and tab bond strength to the matrix, and 14

ACCEPTANCE CRITERIA FOR MASONRY AND CONCRETE STRENGTHENING USING FIBER-REINFORCED CEMENTITIOUS MATRIX (FRCM) COMPOSITE SYSTEMS (AC434)

development length of the fiber strands within matrix. A minimum of 3 inches (75 mm) tab length is recommended. The thickness of the tabs shall be adequate to distribute uniformly the gripping force to the overall width of the coupons. A 1 minimum thickness of /16 inch (2 mm) is recommended. A4.0 Calibration The accuracy of all measuring equipment shall have certified calibrations that are current at the time of use of the equipment. A5.0 Conditioning Unless a different environment is specified as part of the experiment, test specimens shall be moist cured at least for seven days after lay-up, and another seven days at laboratory environment before testing. Tests can be conducted at 14-day age and later. Storage after curing and testing shall be at standard laboratory atmospheric conditions. A6.0 Procedure After conditioning and before testing, coupon type and geometry and environmental conditioning test parameters are specified. The overall cross-sectional area of the specimen is calculated as follows: A = ws h s

(A1)

where ws is the nominal width and hs is the nominal thickness of the coupon. The width and thickness are measured at three locations along the specimen and averaged. This value is determined for reporting purposes only. For computation of FRCM 2 2 mechanical properties, the area of grid reinforcement by unit width, Af measured in. /in (mm /mm), as reported by the manufacturer, is used. Special tabs prepared for installation are glued to the specimen. The glue shall be permitted to cure per applicant instruction. The specimen placed in the grips of testing machine, taking care to align the axis of the gripped specimen with the test direction. If applicable, the grips are tightened. An initial minimal tension, less than 5 percent of the anticipated failure load, is applied to straighten potential bow in the specimen. The displacement transducer is attached to the specimen, preferably symmetrically about the mid-span, mid-width location. The load is applied under displacement control. The loading rate can be adjusted by the velocity of the machine head. A standard rate of 0.01 in./min (0.2 mm/min) is recommended. The load versus displacement shall be recorded continuously or at frequent regular intervals. The load, displacement, and mode of cracking (or any other damage) during testing that would cause transition region in otherwise a linear response are recorded. Cracks may occur at regular spacing along the specimen. If the cracks intercept the transducer bearing points, the specimen shall be unloaded to the level of the initial loading. The displacement transducer shall then be slightly moved and reinstalled to bear at uncracked region of the matrix. Reload the specimen with the same rate of loading and continue data recording. The displacement transducer shall be removed before anticipated failure to avoid damage to the sensor, but load readings shall continue until failure. The maximum load, the failure load, and corresponding displacements at, or as near as possible to, the moment of rupture shall be recorded, along with the failure mode and location. A7.0 Calculation The recorded data shall be reduced to reflect the initial tensile loading and reading discontinuity if the transducer were to be moved during the test. This will likely result in a near bilinear response curve (Figure A1) with an initial line for uncracked specimen, a secondary line for cracked specimen, and possibly a curved transition segment in between. A7.1 Expected Tensile Stress – Strain Curve: The expected tensile stress, ff, versus tensile strain, εf, curve of an FRCM coupon specimen is shown in Figure A1. If a curved segment exist in between two linear portions of the response curve, the two lines to initial and secondary segments of the response curve shall be continued until they intersect. The displacement and load corresponding to the intersection are calculated as the transition point data, named T in Figure A1.

Approved October 2011

PREFACE Evaluation reports issued by ICC Evaluation Service, LLC (ICC-ES), are based upon performance features of the International family of codes. (Some reports may also reference older code families such as the BOCA National Codes, the Standard Codes, and the Uniform Codes.) Section 104.11 of the International Building Code® reads as follows: The provisions of this code are not intended to prevent the installation of any materials or to prohibit any design or method of construction not specifically prescribed by this code, provided that any such alternative has been approved. An alternative material, design or method of construction shall be approved where the building official finds that the proposed design is satisfactory and complies with the intent of the provisions of this code, and that the material, method or work offered is, for the purpose intended, at least the equivalent of that prescribed in this code in quality, strength, effectiveness, fire resistance, durability and safety. This acceptance criteria has been issued to provide interested parties with guidelines for demonstrating compliance with performance features of the codes referenced in the criteria. The criteria was developed through a transparent process involving public hearings of the ICC-ES Evaluation Committee, and/or on-line postings where public comment was solicited. New acceptance criteria will only have an “approved” date, which is the date the document was approved by the Evaluation Committee. When existing acceptance criteria are revised, the Evaluation Committee will decide whether the revised document should carry only an “approved” date, or an “approved” date combined with a “compliance” date. The compliance date is the date by which relevant evaluation reports must comply with the requirements of the criteria. See the ICC-ES web site for more information on compliance dates. If this criteria is a revised edition, a solid vertical line (│) in the margin within the criteria indicates a technical change from the previous edition. A deletion indicator () is provided in the margin where wording has been deleted if the deletion involved a technical change. ICC-ES may consider alternate criteria for report approval, provided the report applicant submits data demonstrating that the alternate criteria are at least equivalent to the criteria set forth in this document, and otherwise demonstrate compliance with the performance features of the codes. ICC-ES retains the right to refuse to issue or renew any evaluation report, if the applicable product, material, or method of construction is such that either unusual care with its installation or use must be exercised for satisfactory performance, or if malfunctioning is apt to cause injury or unreasonable damage. NOTE: The Preface for ICC-ES acceptance criteria was revised in July 2011 to reflect changes in policy.

Acceptance criteria are developed for use solely by ICC-ES for purpose of issuing ICC-ES evaluation reports. Copyright© 2011

Besides the information requested in Section 2.4, the test report shall include the following:

Crushing of the masonry in compression

Debonding of the FRCM from the masonry substrate (FRCM debonding)

Tensile yielding of the steel reinforcement

Tensile rupture of FRCM material

The effective tensile strain level in the FRCM composite material attained at failure, εfe, shall be limited to the design tensile strain of the FRCM composite material, εfd, defined in Equation (1): 6

ffv =0.75 Ef.εfv

(1)

FRCM shall be applied on both sides of the wall with primary fiber strands oriented perpendicular to the applied shear force. Fiber strands shall not have a misalignment of more than 5 degrees.

where εfu is the ultimate tensile strain of the FRCM composite material. The effective tensile stress level in the FRCM reinforcement attained at failure, ffe, shall be calculated in accordance with Equation (2): .

ffe = 0.85 Ef.εfe with εfe ≤ εfd

The design shear strength shall be calculated in accordance with Equation (6).

where Ef is the tensile modulus of elasticity of the cracked FRCM composite material. Fiber strands shall be oriented perpendicular to the direction of the applied bending moment and shall not have a misalignment of more than 5 degrees.

ᶲv Vn = ᶲv (Vm+Vf)

(6)

where Vn is the nominal shear strength; Vm and Vf are the contribution of the (unreinforced or reinforced) masonry and the FRCM composite material to the nominal shear strength, respectively. Vm is calculated in accordance with TMS 402. Vf is calculated as defined in Equation (7):

The design flexural strength shall be calculated in accordance with Equation (3). ᶲm Mn = ᶲm (Mm+Mf)

(5)

Vf = 2 n Af L ffv

(3)

(7)

where Af is the area of the grid reinforcement by unit width effective in shear, n is the number of layers of grid reinforcement, and L is the length of the wall in the direction of the applied shear force. The strength reduction factor for shear, ᶲv, is equal to 0.75. A minimum development length of 6 inches (152 mm) shall be considered.

where Mn is the nominal flexural strength; Mm and Mf are the contribution of the reinforced masonry and the FRCM composite material to the nominal flexural strength, respectively. In the case of unreinforced masonry, only the term Mf is considered. The strength reduction factor for flexure, ᶲm, is equal to 0.6 for both reinforced and unreinforced masonry.

8.2.2.1 Limitations: To limit the total force per unit width transferred to the masonry, the increment in shear strength provided by the FRCM reinforcement shall not exceed 50 percent of the capacity of the structure without strengthening for both unreinforced and conventionally reinforced masonry walls. Strengthening is limited to maximum wall thickness of 12 inches (305 mm).

For the computation of Mn, when the FRCM composite material is applied on both sides of the wall, the contribution of FRCM in the compression side is neglected. FRCM application does not contribute to the enhancement of the nominal out-of-plane shear strength of the masonry wall which shall be calculated according to TMS 402. A minimum development length of 6 inches (152 mm) shall be considered.

8.3

Concrete:

8.3.1 Flexural Strength Enhancement of Reinforced Concrete Members: The FRCM composite material bonded to surfaces of reinforced concrete members may be used to enhance the design flexural strength of sections by acting as external tension reinforcement. In such cases, section analysis shall be based on the following normal assumptions: (a) plane sections remain plane after loading; (b) the bond between the FRCM and the substrate remains effective; (c) the maximum usable compressive strain in the concrete is 0.003; (d) FRCM has a linear elastic behavior to failure.

8.2.1.1 Limitations: In the case of unreinforced masonry, when subjected to out-of-plane loading, the wall behaves as a simply supported element or very nearly so, and the influence of wall arching mechanisms can be neglected. An arching mechanism can potentially develop in a wall with a height-to-thickness (H/t) ratio of less than 8 when the wall is built between stiff supports. The influence of arching in the out-of-plane behavior decreases for walls with H/t ratios greater than 14. As a reference, Tables 7-5 and 7-10 of ASCE 41 provide H/t ratios where an unreinforced masonry wall does not need to be analyzed for out-of-plane seismic forces and, therefore, does not require strengthening. For conventionally reinforced masonry walls, to limit the total force per unit width transferred to the masonry, the increment in flexural strength provided by the FRCM reinforcement shall not exceed 50 percent of the capacity of the structure without strengthening.

The flexural strength of a reinforced concrete section depends on the controlling failure mode. Failure modes for an FRCM-strengthened section include:

Crushing of the concrete in compression before yielding of the reinforcing steel.

Yielding of the steel in tension followed by concrete crushing.

8.2.2 Shear Strength Enhancement: The FRCM composite material bonded to surfaces of masonry may be used to enhance the design shear strength in the plane of the wall by acting as shear reinforcement.

Annex A Tensile Testing of Fiber-reinforced Cementitious Matrix (FRCM) Composite Specimens A1.0 Summary of Test Method A thin flat strip of material having a near-constant rectangular cross section is mounted in the grips of a mechanical testing machine and loaded with monotonically increasing load in tension while recording load and movement. The ultimate strength of the material can be determined from a maximum load carried before failure. The coupon strain or elongation is monitored with displacement transducers to determine the nominal stress-strain response of the material, and from that the cracking stress and strain, ultimate tensile strain, tensile modulus of elasticity before and after cracking of cement-based matrix can be derived. This test procedure is designed to produce tensile property data for material specifications, quality assurance, and structural design and analysis. Factors that influence the tensile response and shall therefore be reported include the following: material, methods of material preparation and lay-up, specimen preparation, specimen conditioning, environment of testing, specimen alignment and gripping, and speed of testing. Properties, in the test direction, which may be obtained from this test include: 1.

Ultimate tensile strength

2.

Ultimate tensile strain

3.

Tensile modulus of elasticity of uncracked specimen

4.

Tensile modulus of elasticity of cracked specimen

5.

Transition point

Attention shall be paid to material and specimen preparation, gripping, and test system alignment. Poor material fabrication practices, lack of control in alignment of fiber grid, and damage induced by improper cutting and machining the coupons are known causes of high material data scatter. Specimen gripping problems can also cause a high percentage of grip-influenced failures and therefore more scatter in data. Every effort shall be made to eliminate excess bending due to system misalignment and out-of-tolerance conditions caused by poor specimen preparation. A2.0 Apparatus A2.1 Dimension Measurements: The accuracy of instruments used for measuring dimensions of the test specimens shall be suitable for reading to within 1 percent of the sample dimensions. A2.2 Testing Machine: The testing machine shall be in conformance with Practices ASTM E 4. The testing machine shall have both an essentially stationary head and a movable head. The drive mechanism shall be capable of imparting to the movable head a controlled velocity with respect to the stationary head. The testing machine load sensing device shall be able to indicate the applied load to the specimen within 1 percent of the indicated value. Each head of the testing machine shall carry one grip for holding the test specimen in coincident with the longitudinal axis of the specimen. The grips shall apply sufficient lateral pressure to prevent slippage between the grip face and the coupon. It is desirable to use grips that are rotationally self-aligning to minimize bending stresses in the coupon. A.2.3 Strain Indicating Device: An extensometer satisfying Practice ASTM E 83, Class B-1 requirements can be used for strain/elongation measurement. A minimum gage length of 2 inches (50 mm) shall be used. Since the coupon undergoes cracking in the early stages of loading, the gage length shall be adequate to at least include within itself one transverse crack. The bearing points of the extensometer on the coupon shall not be disturbed by cracking. If cracking occurs at the bearing points, the specimen shall be unloaded and extensometer moved. The discontinuity in elongation reading can be removed in data reduction process by matching the stop and restart point or similar means. The weight of extensometer shall not cause significant bending in the specimen. A3.0 Test Specimens At least five specimens shall be tested per test condition. Specimens can be cut from larger panels laid up in special molds. Control of fiber grid alignment is critical in lay-up procedure. Effective cutting tools and methods need to used, and precautions shall be taken to avoid notches, undercuts, uneven surfaces, or delaminations. The specimen preparation method shall be reported. Specimens shall be labeled properly to be distinct from each other and traceable to the raw material. The test specimens shall be rectangular coupons. The thickness of coupons shall be as required and be a function of number of layers and thickness of matrix for each layer. The width of the coupon shall be adequate to include a minimum number of strands (e.g., three3 strands in each layer) and shall not be less than four times the thickness of the specimen. The width shall also be kept as a multiple of the grid spacing. Also, in case the strands in different layers are staggered with respect to each other, it is preferable to have the same number of strands in each layer along the width of the coupon. The minimum length of the coupon shall include gripping distance, plus twice the width plus gage length. Longer lengths are preferred to minimize the bending effects on the specimen. Metallic tabs (e.g., steel, aluminum) are recommended for gripping to avoid damage to the specimen by grips. The tabs can be glued to the specimen ends (two at each end, one at each face). The tabs shall have the same width as the coupon. The tab length can be calculated based on the maximum expected tensile load, glue and tab bond strength to the matrix, and 14

development length of the fiber strands within matrix. A minimum of 3 inches (75 mm) tab length is recommended. The thickness of the tabs shall be adequate to distribute uniformly the gripping force to the overall width of the coupons. A 1 minimum thickness of /16 inch (2 mm) is recommended. A4.0 Calibration The accuracy of all measuring equipment shall have certified calibrations that are current at the time of use of the equipment. A5.0 Conditioning Unless a different environment is specified as part of the experiment, test specimens shall be moist cured at least for seven days after lay-up, and another seven days at laboratory environment before testing. Tests can be conducted at 14-day age and later. Storage after curing and testing shall be at standard laboratory atmospheric conditions. A6.0 Procedure After conditioning and before testing, coupon type and geometry and environmental conditioning test parameters are specified. The overall cross-sectional area of the specimen is calculated as follows: A = ws h s

(A1)

where ws is the nominal width and hs is the nominal thickness of the coupon. The width and thickness are measured at three locations along the specimen and averaged. This value is determined for reporting purposes only. For computation of FRCM 2 2 mechanical properties, the area of grid reinforcement by unit width, Af measured in. /in (mm /mm), as reported by the manufacturer, is used. Special tabs prepared for installation are glued to the specimen. The glue shall be permitted to cure per applicant instruction. The specimen placed in the grips of testing machine, taking care to align the axis of the gripped specimen with the test direction. If applicable, the grips are tightened. An initial minimal tension, less than 5 percent of the anticipated failure load, is applied to straighten potential bow in the specimen. The displacement transducer is attached to the specimen, preferably symmetrically about the mid-span, mid-width location. The load is applied under displacement control. The loading rate can be adjusted by the velocity of the machine head. A standard rate of 0.01 in./min (0.2 mm/min) is recommended. The load versus displacement shall be recorded continuously or at frequent regular intervals. The load, displacement, and mode of cracking (or any other damage) during testing that would cause transition region in otherwise a linear response are recorded. Cracks may occur at regular spacing along the specimen. If the cracks intercept the transducer bearing points, the specimen shall be unloaded to the level of the initial loading. The displacement transducer shall then be slightly moved and reinstalled to bear at uncracked region of the matrix. Reload the specimen with the same rate of loading and continue data recording. The displacement transducer shall be removed before anticipated failure to avoid damage to the sensor, but load readings shall continue until failure. The maximum load, the failure load, and corresponding displacements at, or as near as possible to, the moment of rupture shall be recorded, along with the failure mode and location. A7.0 Calculation The recorded data shall be reduced to reflect the initial tensile loading and reading discontinuity if the transducer were to be moved during the test. This will likely result in a near bilinear response curve (Figure A1) with an initial line for uncracked specimen, a secondary line for cracked specimen, and possibly a curved transition segment in between. A7.1 Expected Tensile Stress – Strain Curve: The expected tensile stress, ff, versus tensile strain, εf, curve of an FRCM coupon specimen is shown in Figure A1. If a curved segment exist in between two linear portions of the response curve, the two lines to initial and secondary segments of the response curve shall be continued until they intersect. The displacement and load corresponding to the intersection are calculated as the transition point data, named T in Figure A1.
