I am investigating the use of Carbon Fibre Reinforced Plastic (CFRP) sheets
to strengthen or repair Reinforced Concrete beams. What is the position in
regard to CFRP's use for this purpose in the U.S.?
Has it been used on any bridge repair? Does anyone know a text that would
outline the development of Fibre Reinforced Plastic (FRP) in the U.S.for
use in Structural Engineering. 
With Thanks in advance,
