The planned developments require in particular the following works: - the realization of the earthworks and the reinforcements or walls necessary for the widening of the platform, - adaptation and recovery of sanitation and drainage in bau, - the realization of the pavement structures of the shelter, - the removal and replacement of certain signs, - the installation of a lateral restraint on certain sections, - the realization of horizontal signage, - the resumption of refuges at or near existing pau.
The toughness and deformability of HDC under uniaxial compression can be significantly improved for the lateral restraint effect of the fiber bridging stress inside the matrix, which has obvious difference with concrete [1].
This is because the lateral restraint can be effectively enhanced with the thickness and ultimate tensile strength of FRP, thereby increasing the axial compressive capacity.
In order to ensure the stability of the lateral restraint plate, four lateral reinforcement plates were symmetrically welded to the two sides of the lateral restraint plate.
