?With the advent of advanced composite materials in the form of fiber reinforced polymer (FRP), these innovative FRP materials have been utilized across the world as internal reinforcements, external reinforcements, and prestressing tendons/strands. The research carried out on FRP materials have revealed their potential as efficient construction materials requiring least maintenance and minimal life cycle cost. In addition, FRP also finds usage as external strengthening material in deficient structures and for upgrading the strength of structures to meet new requirements. 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 prestressing materials. The main topics covered: introduction of FRP composites? material characteristics? 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 prestressed concrete bridges, this book comes equipped with ample exercise problems and design examples. As a consolidated source of design guidelines and design examples on FRP reinforced and/or prestressed concrete structures, this book will be of prime interest to a wide range of readers including researchers, academicians in general, consultants, practitioners, designers, writers of design codes, structural engineers, and senior undergraduate and graduate students.

Although the use of composites has increased in many industrial, commercial, medical, and defense applications, there is a lack of technical literature that examines composites in conjunction with concrete construction. Fulfilling the need for a comprehensive, explicit guide, Reinforced Concrete Design with FRP Composites presents specific information necessary for designing concrete structures with fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composites as a substitute for steel reinforcement and for using FRP fabrics to strengthen concrete members. In a reader-friendly, design-oriented manner, this book discusses the analysis, design, durability, and serviceability of concrete members reinforced with FRP. The authors first introduce the elements that constitute composites-the structural constituent and matrix-and discuss how composites are manufactured. Following an examination of the durability of FRP composites that contain fibers, such as glass, carbon, or aramid, the book illustrates how FRP external reinforcement systems (FRP-ER) can be used for enhancing the strength and stiffness of concrete structures using theory and design principles. The concluding chapter concentrates on serviceability aspects of concrete members internally reinforced with FRP. An excellent resource of design and construction practices, Reinforced Concrete Design with FRP Composites is a state-of-the-art reference on concrete members reinforced with FRP.

Fibre reinforced plastics are increasingly being used as replacements for steel reinforcement in concrete structures. The reinforcement can be untensioned, or it can be in the form of prestressing tendons. It is also suitable for gluing onto the outside of a structure to improve flexural or shear performance. This book provides up-to-date research results to give engineers confidence in their design methods. Originally, it was thought that steel bars could be replaced by equivalent FRP rods, but their properties are significantly different and optimum use is made when the properties of FRP are considered from the outset. This collection of papers explores a variety of topics, including: durability; externally bonded flexural reinforcement; externally bonded shear reinforcement; untensioned or prestressed reinforcement; bond; shear; confinement of concrete in columns or compression zones; seismic behaviour and economics. Written by the leading international researchers in this field, the book compares current practice in the UK, Europe, the USA and Japan, and considers how the topic can be codified to assist widespread use of this exciting new technology.

This book analyses the current knowledge on structural behaviour of RC elements and structures strengthened with composite materials (experimental, analytical and numerical approaches for EBR and NSM), particularly in relation to the above topics, and the comparison of the predictions of the current available codes/recommendations/guidelines with selected experimental results. The book shows possible critical issues (discrepancies, lacunae, relevant parameters, test procedures, etc.) related to current code predictions or to evaluate their reliability, in order to develop more uniform methods and basic rules for design and control of FRP strengthened RC structures. General problems/critical issues are clarified on the basis of the actual experiences, detect discrepancies in existing codes, lacunae in knowledge and, concerning these identified subjects, provide proposals for improvements. The book will help to contribute to promote and consolidate a more qualified and conscious approach towards rehabilitation and strengthening existing RC structures with composites and their possible monitoring.
