Strengthening of Bridge Slabs with Frp Systems

  title={Strengthening of Bridge Slabs with Frp Systems},
  author={Tarek Hassan},
Advances in the fields of polymers and composites have resulted in a major development of high strength fibre reinforced polymers (FRP). These materials offer great potential for cost-effective retrofitting of concrete structures. In response to the growing need for concrete repair and rehabilitation, an experimental program was conducted at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, to investigate the feasibility of using different strengthening techniques as well as different… CONTINUE READING
