In this paper, a new type of fiber reinforced cement-based thin sheet composite will be presented. This innovative technology can be applied to retrofit deficient concrete structures with a superior performance to current Fiber Reinforced Polymer resin (FRP) thin sheets. It is well known that significant improvements in compressive, shear, and flexural behavior of concrete can be achieved with externally bonded FRP sheets. In an effective retrofit with external FRP sheets, a layer of dry fiber… CONTINUE READING
