The tensile test was carried out according to the British Standard Aerospace SeriesBS EN 2561:1996 Carbon fibre reinforced plastics. The test was arranged at TESTECH SDNBHD located at Selangor State.The test was required to determine the characteristic or the properties of the carbon fibre E200which proposed to strengthen the R.C deck slab.Tensile Strength (MPa): 3300Ultimate elongation (%): 1.4Modulus of elasticity (GPa): 200The carbon fibre E200 was camped by tensile machine with thevertically checked to ensure the unidirectional test was carriedout. The pulling speed was preset at 2mm per min.
preparationThe specimen was cut into the 10mm width and 250 ± 1 mm.Both ends were bonded with the end tabs with epoxy to ensurethe griping during the pulling force applied.Expression of resultsUltimate tensile strength, =

The test specimen was test to failure, until the specimen was brittle.
The tests are carried out on actual structural members strengthened with the composite Carbonfibre system. Although there are variations in the equipment for carrying out pull-off tests, thegeneral procedure can be summarized as follows:1.
After the composite strengthening system has hardened, core drill through the compositematerial and down 3
6 mm into the concrete substrate by means of an electric drillfitted with a carbide-tipped or diamond core bit. The core bit should be of such size as to produce a core the same diameter as the testing dolly, and which will have the appearanceof a small island of composite material. The normal size of the dolly is 50 mm diameter.Ensure that the drilling operation does not cause any detrimental effects on the system byusing wet drill techniques to minimise heat exposure, and ensure it is perpendicular to thesurface.2.
Prepare the top of the core surface to be tested. Preparation includes cleaning of thecomposite material surface, roughening it with sandpaper, and final cleaning of any dust.3.
Place an aluminium dolly onto the surface of the core with epoxy adhesive. The bottomsurface of the dolly has to be sandblasted or sufficiently roughened with sandpaper, and be cleaned and free from any grease or dust. Mix the epoxy components according to therecommendations just prior to use. Apply a small amount of the mixed adhesive to thecore surface and to the bonding (properly prepared) face of the dolly by spatula. Place thedolly on the core.
