Table of Contents

Review of materials and techniques for plate bonding; Materials; Structural strengthening of concrete beams using unstressed composite plates; Structural strengthening of concrete using prestressed plates; Environmental durability; Time-dependent behaviour and fatigue; Analytical and numerical solutions to structural strengthening of beams by plate bonding; Design specifications for FRP plate bonding of beams; Site construction techniques; Case histories of plate bonding world-wide.


Description

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 the possibility of using fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) materials in its place, 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 fibre reinforces polymer composite plates. It is based to a large extent on material developed or provided by the consortium which studied the technology of plate bonding to upgrade structural units using carbon fibre / polymer composite materials. The research and trial tests were undertaken as part of the ROBUST project, one of several ventures in the UK Government's DTI-LINK Structural Composites Programme.

The book has been designed for practising structural and civil engineers seeking to understand the principles and design technology of plate bonding, and for final year undergraduate and postgraduate engineers studying the principles of highway and bridge engineering and structural engineering.
