Abstract

An analytical method for the elastic analysis of the interaction between a concrete beam and a steel plate bonded to it by epoxy adhesive is presented. The shear and the peeling distributed forces induced into the epoxy are formulated. It is observed that large shear and peeling distributed forces are induced into the epoxy at a samll region at the edges of the steel plate. The cases where large tensile distributed peeling force is induced, are discussed.
