Technology Reports of Kansai University (ISSN: 04532198) is a monthly peer-reviewed and open-access international Journal. It was first built in 1959 and officially in 1975 till now by kansai university, japan. The journal covers all sort of engineering topic, mathematics and physics. Technology Reports of Kansai University (TRKU) was closed access journal until 2017. After that TRKU became open access journal. TRKU is a scopus indexed journal and directly run by faculty of engineering, kansai university.

This paper presents an experimental study on repairing damaged beam-column reinforced concrete joints using carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP). Eight specimens of exterior reinforced concrete beam-column joints were tested to identify an effective method for improving the performance of the joint in terms of lateral strength. These eight specimens were designed with four specimens using a grout repair and injection scheme, while another scheme with externally bonded CFRP sheets (EB) and surface mounted CFRP strips (NSM) was explored as different reinforcement options (NSM + EB combined). The test results show that with the addition of CFRP reinforcement, the performance of beam joints in damaged conditions can be significantly improved. In particular, the use of CFRP NSM strip schemes and CFRP sheets bonded externally to beams and joints can effectively remove the plastic joints from the joint area, thereby causing a ductile failure mode (beam bending failure), which demonstrates the effectiveness of this retrofit method. Where the NSM + EB scheme can improve performance against loads of 9.43%, 20.46%, 28.98%, 16.64%, respectively, compared to using only grout and injection.
So as to consent to the COP 21 Paris Agreement, in the Latin American region, the implementation of green power projects should constitute a main pillar. Consequently, the broadening of the power matrix must be inclined towards the consolidation of green energy and in this manner, the development of green power source ventures ought to be implemented. This article highlights the capability of the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) to improve green energy projects and subsequently, to acquire profits by diminishing the effect of environmental changes thanks to green consumption. Additionally, this work studies key obstructions and open doors for promoting the constructing of clean power ventures prompting Latin America's green development. This study evidenced that, so as to progress in the development of green power ventures, new laws linked to clean developments ought to be established, proposing novel plans on sustainable viewpoints along with budgetary and administrative changes. Thus, new public policies, tax benefits, and administrative instruments ought to be set up. Financing components to create green power actions ought to be both sustainable and lucrative and, this is the reason the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) should assume a fundamental part for expanding the proposal of sustainable projects as a way to survey the Kyoto Protocol's adequacy. Finally, advantages, for example, social framework ventures, through drinking water systems, emergency clinics, and schools can likewise be gotten from green projects
