Abstract

"Rehabilitation of existing structures with Fiber Reinforced Polymers (FRP) has been growing in popularity because of their superior performance in terms of resistance to corrosion and high stiffness-to-weight ratio. Of the several external strengthening systems that have proved to be effective and efficient, Mechanically-Fastened (MF) FRP pre-cured laminates are now emerging as a promising technique which, in some cases, presents substantial advantages with respect to bond systems. The purpose of this research was to validate, from a mechanics point of view, the Mechanically-Fastened Fiber Reinforced Polymer (MF-FRP) as a rapid and efficient strengthening system to retrofit existing deteriorated reinforced concrete bridges"--Abstract, leaf iii.
