Guide for the Design and Construction of Externally Bonded Fiber-Reinforced Polymer Systems for Strengthening Unreinforced Masonry Structures 1

Guide for the Design and Construction of Externally Bonded Fiber-Reinforced Polymer Systems for Strengthening Unreinforced Masonry Structures

Description Masonry is a generic term used to describe a type of construction where clay, or concrete masonry units, or natural stones are bonded together to form a load-bearing structure or a component in a structure. Non-load-bearing masonry includes partitions and veneers. Although masonry is used in flexural applications such as retaining walls, roof and …

Guide for the Design and Construction of Externally Bonded FRP Systems for Strengthening Concrete Structures 2

Guide for the Design and Construction of Externally Bonded FRP Systems for Strengthening Concrete Structures

Description The strengthening or retrofitting of existing concrete structures to resist higher design loads, correct strength loss due to deterioration, correct design or construction deficiencies, or increase ductility has traditionally been accomplished using conventional materials and construction techniques. Externally bonded steel plates, steel or concrete jackets, and external post-tensioning are just some of the many …

Guide for the Design and Construction of Durable Concrete Parking Structures (ACI 362.1R-12) 3

Guide for the Design and Construction of Durable Concrete Parking Structures (ACI 362.1R-12)

Description This guide addresses the design and construction of durable concrete parking structures. Parking structures are different from other concrete buildings due to their:a) Reduced roofing, cladding, and climate control that result in a more severe direct or indirect exposure to rain, snow, sunlight, temperature variations, and airborne chloridesb) Vehicular occupancy that imposes heavy moving …

Guide for the Design and Construction of Structural Concrete Reinforced with Fiber-Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Bars 4

Guide for the Design and Construction of Structural Concrete Reinforced with Fiber-Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Bars

Description Conventional concrete structures are reinforced with non prestressed and prestressed steel. The steel is initially protected against corrosion by the alkalinity of the concrete, usually resulting in durable and serviceable construction. For many structures subjected to aggressive environments, such as marine structures, bridges, and parking garages exposed to deicing salts, combinations of moisture, tempera-ture, …

Guide for the Design and Construction of Concrete Parking Lots 6

Guide for the Design and Construction of Concrete Parking Lots

Description Concrete parking lots have many similarities to other typesof concrete pavement. On the other hand, parking lots differfrom other pavements in that most of the area is intended forstorage of vehicles and other goods rather than for movementof vehicles. The design of concrete parking lots should follow enerally accepted procedures for concrete pavements asoutlined …
