Strengthening of Reinforced Concrete Structures by L C Hollaway M Leeming

Book Description The in situ rehabilitation or upgrading of reinforced concrete members using bonded steel plates is an effective, convenient and economic method of improving structural performance. However, disadvantages inherent in the use of steel have stimulated research into the possibility of using fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) materials in its place, providing a non-corrosive, more …

2020 Structures Strengthened with Bonded Composites by Zhishen Wu, Yufei Wu, Mohamed F.M. Fahmy

Strengthening or stiffening of civil infrastructure using externally bonded fiberreinforcedpolymer (FRP) composites such as FRP plates, sheets, and grids hasbecome a promising structural strengthening technique. It has also gained muchpopularity recently, particularly in rehabilitation of structures/infrastructures due tothe worldwide deterioration problems and earthquake hazards. Their high strengthto-weight ratio, durability in adverse environments, and high fatigue …
