Preface to Strengthening of Concrete Structures PDF E-book
This e-book presents tips for the strengthening of concrete constructions utilizing fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites.
This textual content briefly covers the fundamental ideas of FRP supplies and composite mechanics whereas specializing in sensible design and building points, together with inspection and high quality management.
Particular consideration is given to the completely different approaches and suggestions present in a range of worldwide FRP design requirements.
Fairly than a theoretical textual content, this e-book makes an attempt to handle considerations of the practitioner, and the authors hope that it will likely be discovered invaluable in that regard.
If judged by the proliferation of journal articles lately, there may be appreciable curiosity within the engineering utility of FRP.
One of the quickest rising functions is the use of FRP composite sheets for strengthening poor concrete constructions, and specifically, bridges.
Some of the principle driving forces are the convenience of set up and fast repairs that may be made utilizing FRP sheets compared to typical rehabilitation strategies utilizing concrete or metal jackets.
Consequently, whole mission prices might be very aggressive, regardless of the excessive preliminary materials value of FRP. At current, a number of FRP strengthening design guides from the US, Europe, and different places can be found.
These tips are sometimes inconsistent and, individually, don’t adequately cowl all vital design, building, and inspection points to a fascinating degree of element.
Consequently, this e-book first gives a assessment and comparability of the provisions present in a range of these current tips, after which suggests design, set up, inspection, high quality management, and upkeep actions for greatest follow.
By doing so, this textual content goals to fill a major hole within the obtainable strengthening guides and may function a useful resource for engineers, architects, teachers, and college students excited by FRP supplies and their structural functions.
The authors want to acknowledge the work of Sasan Siavashi, Abdel Aziz Makkay, and Abdulkareem Kuaryouti, who spent many hours accumulating info from current tips in addition to ready quite a few figures and tables.
We’re additionally grateful to Gwen Jones of Woodhead/Elsevier. Her help and encouragement has made this e-book attainable.
Lastly, we want to thank our wives, Shiow-Hwa Gau (HCW) and Marie Chris Eamon (CDE). The completion of this textual content wouldn’t be attainable with out their love, endurance, and understanding.
