Rehabilitation of Concrete Structures with Fiber Reinforced Polymer is a complete guide to the use of FRP in flexural, shear and axial strengthening of concrete structures. Through worked design examples, the authors guide readers through the details of usage, including anchorage systems, different materials and methods of repairing concrete structures using these techniques. Topics include the usage of FRP in concrete structure repair, concrete structural deterioration and rehabilitation, methods of structural rehabilitation and strengthening, a review of the design basis for FRP systems, including strengthening limits, fire endurance, and environmental considerations.
In addition, readers will find sections on the strengthening of members under flexural stress, including failure modes, design procedures, examples and anchorage detailing, and sections on shear and torsion stress, axial strengthening, the installation of FRP systems, and strengthening against extreme loads, such as earthquakes and fire, amongst other important topics.
