Fwd: FRP for Civil Applications

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
     Does anyone have information about strengthening existing precast 
     concrete bridge girders using either steel or FRP plates bonded to the 
     bottom of the precast girders ?
     I believe ACI Committee 440 issued a "state-of-the-art" document on 
     carbon-fiber sheet composites that may be of interest.  You might also 
     check out External Reinforcement Inc. at 1-888-875-2700, Structural 
     Preservation Systems Inc. in Baltimore, or TYFO Fibrwrap at 
     You may also want to contact Professors Hamid Saadatmanesh or Mohammad 
     Ehsani at the University of Arizona, Tucson where they have done 
     extensive research in composite plates for beam strengthening.
