This text teaches readers how to analyse and design with fiber reinforced polymers (FRP) for civil engineering applications. It demystifies FRP composites and demonstrates applications where their properties make them ideal materials to consider off-shore and waterfront structures, factories, and storage tanks.The physical tests noted should be conducted on samples taken from the FRP composite and not on samples taken from the polymer matrix alone. This is because ... Another useful guide to testing of composite materials that can be consulted in addition to Table 3.1 is ASTM D 4762. This guide ... ACI 440.2R-02 ( 2002) allows two different methods for designing FRP strengthening systems. One methodanbsp;...
