Abstract

Fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites have been widely used to strengthen and retrofit deficient concrete, metallic, masonry and timber structures. As a result, extensive research has been conducted around the world to develop a sound understanding of the behaviour of such strengthened structures and to develop theoretical models for use in practical design. This paper provides a summary of recent and current research at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) on the theory of FRP-strengthened concrete and steel structures. Some key issues for further research are also discussed where appropriate.
