Strengthening of Reinforced Concrete Structures Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 using fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) material in its place, with the goal of providing a non-corrosive, more versatile strengthening system.

This book presents a detailed study of the flexural strengthening of reinforced and prestressed concrete members using FRP composite plates. The editors and contributors cover short and long term performance through model and full-scale experimental testing plus theoretical and numerical considerations. They discuss previous investigative and site work undertaken to strengthen concrete beams using steel bonded pates and the pros and cons of using the steel and composite plate materials and present case histories of construction members upgraded or strengthened using carbon fibre/polymer matrix composite materials bonded to the structural unit.
