Paper Abstract

The authors have developed an electrically conductive fiber reinforced composite that its electrical resistance changes almost in proportion to strain. This material was tested for its tensile and bond behaviors. As a result, it was discovered that this material applied for the strengthening of concrete structures is highly effective to diagnose cracks in the concrete.
