FRP composites in structures: some recent research

Conference Paper

Abstract


  • An on-going research programme led by the first author at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) has

    addressed many issues in the application of fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites in civil engineering

    structures. While the main focus of the programme has been on the behaviour and modelling of reinforced

    concrete (RC) and metallic structures strengthened with bonded FRP reinforcement, increasing attention has also

    been devoted to the use of FRP composites in new construction. This paper presents a brief summary of some of

    the latest advances of the research programme, covering the strengthening of RC structures with bonded FRP

    reinforcement, seismic retrofit of RC structures, durability of FRP-strengthened RC structures, hybrid FRPconcrete

    structures, and smart FRP structures. Much of the work has involved collaboration with the third author

    at the University of Edinburgh.
