Abstract

There is a great potential in using fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) to strengthen aging metallic structures. This paper briefly describes the benefit of using FRP to strengthen metallic structures. It then addresses how fatigue load affects the bond between FRP and steel. FRP fatigue strengthening of cracked steel plates and connections are discussed. Furthermore, effects of using prestressed FRP on flexural and fatigue behaviours of a FRP-steel composite system are addressed. Bonded and un-bonded FRP-to-steel applications, as two different approaches for steel strengthening, are discussed. Finally fatigue strengthening of metallic riveted bridges using unbonded pre-stressed FRP plates is presented. A comprehensive list of references is provided.
