Life expectancy modeling for FRP strengthened reinforced concrete bridges
"In this thesis, the author presents one possible strength degradation approach using analytical modeling to determine the life expectancy of FRP strengthened bridges. An actual Carbon FRP field strengthened bridge in Dallas County, Missouri, USA, is utilized to demonstrate the life expectancy approach. The Dallas County Bridge P-0962 was constructed in 1955 and strengthened in 2003. To predict the life expectancy behavior of the bridge structure, a theoretical model was derived using basic concepts, past research, and the tested properties of specimens for critical chloride concentration"--Abstract, leaf iii.
