Abstract

Repairing or strengthening failing metallic structures traditionally involves using bulky and heavy external steel plates that often pose their own problems. The plates are generally prone to corrosion and overall fatigue. Fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP), a composite material made of a polymer matrix reinforced with fibers, offers a great alternativ.
