Application of mechanically fastened FRP (MF-FRP) pre-cured laminates in off-system bridges
Keywords and Phrases
Mechanically fastened FRP systems
"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.
