With the increase of loading cycles, the slope of the deflection curve decreased and the deflection increased, mainly because there was less significant residual deflection at this stage.
Also, as expected, during the repeated loading, the residual deflection was increased.
Also, the suggested strengthening leads to an improvement in the serviceability limits regarding maximum and residual deflection under repeated loading.
The residual deflection under initial loading was 1.42 mm.
Residual deflection due to the initial loading of the proposed repair material U-FM-45 and the test specimen to which two types of adhesives are applied is 1.31 mm.
Analysing the experimental results shown in the table 3, it may easily observe that the maximum residual deflection [v.sub.max] after flexural test is much smaller than the maximum deflection recorded at maximum load and also, than the one recorded at the final test.
Following experimental results for full-scale 3 m beams, tested using four-point loading, the mid span displacement under the ultimate load was 35 mm and the residual deflection was about 18 mm.
A problem of increasing residual deflections in a 24 x 24 m RC shell under static load and additional vertical seismic excitation is considered.
