Plated corbels

Composite plated beam construction has been applied to strengthening existing railway bridge corbels. Current design procedures for plating beams are based on research on relatively shallow reinforced concrete beams and therefore do not cover fully the behaviour of corbels that act as deep beams. To overcome this lack of knowledge, large scale prototype plated corbels have been tested and from these tests a new technique of plating has been developed for corbels that allows partial debonding of the plate without loss of strength.
