State-of-the-art of the theory and applications surrounding fundamental mechanics of structures strengthened with bonded fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) reinforcement FRP-strengthened RC Structures provides readers with a comprehensive guide to the fundamental theory that underpins the use of bonded fibre-reinforced polymers (FRP) to strengthen structures. It consolidates the information presented in research papers into one all-encompassing reference on the subject. It provides a self-contained, systematic and thorough treatment of FRP's uses in concrete, steel, timber and masonry within a unified, theoretical framework. It assumes a basic knowledge of structural engineering in the areas of analysis and design. Brings together all the important research work undertaken on FRP strengthening under one cover, providing the reader with a complete state-of-the-art of the area and the best theoretical models available. Addresses the FRP strengthening of concrete, masonry, steel and timber structures using one unified, and theoretical framework and collating together material currently only available in research papers. Includes 24 chapters that address topics ranging from fundamental issues such as bond behaviour, to more specific issues such as the flexoural strengthening of steel beams. Authored by globally acknowledged leading experts in the field of structural strengthening with FRP composites. FRP-strengthened RC Structures will appeal to researchers and code writers as a core reference, designers as an advanced source of information on design guidelines and solutions, and postgraduate and senior undergraduate students in relevant disciplines as a textbook.
