Strengthening of Concrete Structures Using Fiber Reinforced Polymers - This book briefly discusses the basic concepts of FRP materials and composite mechanics, while focusing on practical design and construction issues, including inspection and quality control, paying particular attention to differences in various design codes (US, Japan, and Europe) and recommendations.
Currently, several design guides are available from the US, Japan, and Europe. These guidelines are often inconsistent and do not cover all the necessary design and inspection issues with the same level of detail.
This book provides a critical review and comparison of these guidelines, and then puts forward best practice recommendations, fills significant gaps in the literature, and serves as an important resource for engineers, architects, academics, and students interested in FRP material and its structure. application
Written from a practitioner's point of view, it is a valuable design book for structural engineers worldwide. Includes a large number of design examples and structural software to facilitate learning and help readers carry out design routines.
Provides recommendations for best practices in design and construction for the reinforcement of bridge structures using fiber-reinforced polymer composites (FRP). Provides comprehensive guidelines on design, inspection and quality control, including laboratory and field testing information.
