Detection and evaluation of disbonds between CFRP laminates and concrete members
"Carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) laminates have been successfully used to retrofit concrete structures. However, the presence of disbonds reduces the effectiveness of this strengthening method. Near-field microwave nondestructive testing (NDT) techniques have shown the ability to detect disbonds and delaminations in composite materials. The objective of this investigation was to develop a measurement system capable of detecting and characterizing disbonds in CFRP-strengthened concrete members. The probes investigated include a rectangular waveguide probe and a newly designed dual-polarized probe"--Abstract, page iii.
