Rehabilitation of Pipelines Using Fibre Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Composites book cover

Rehabilitation of Pipelines Using Fibre Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Composites

Pipelines are a critical component in industrial and civil infrastructures, however they present particular challenges in monitoring and repair. Fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composites are increasingly being used as a flexible and cost-effective means to repair ageing, corroded or damaged pipelines. This book reviews key issues and techniques in this important area. The first part of the book reviews general issues such as the range of techniques using FRP composites and how they compare with the use of steel sleeves. The second part of the book discusses particular techniques such sleeve repair, patching and overwrap systems.
