This Report provides guidance for structural designers on strengthening concrete buildings and bridges by bonding fibre composite polymers (FRPs) to the surface or embedded in the concrete and covers multiple applications as well as guidance on the advantages and disadvantages of FRPs over similar materials. This relatively new technique is proving to be much quicker and more cost-effective than techniques using steel plates.
This third edition explains the design approach in detail and discusses workmanship, installation, inspection and maintenance as well as covering a number of changes brought about by the introduction of Eurocode 2, additional research findings and further experience of the use of the materials.
