This book presents various aspects of FRP composite materials, their characteristics, manufacturing techniques, real-life projects, different forms of FRP products and most importantly, detailed procedures for designing new structures using FRP as internal reinforcements, external strengthening materials, and pre-stressing materials.
The main topics covered
Introduction of FRP composites
History and uses of FRP technology
Design of RC structures using FRP bars
Design philosophy for FRP external strengthening systems
Durability-based design approach for external FRP strengthening of RC beams
Alongside case study problems, for example, on FRP pre-stressed concrete bridges, this book comes equipped with ample exercise problems and design examples.
