Composites for Construction: Structural Design with FRP by Lawrence C. Bank

By Lawrence C. Bank

The 1st textbook at the layout of FRP for structural engineering applicationsComposites for building is a special advisor to knowing fiber-reinforced polymers (FRP) and designing and retrofitting constructions with FRP. Written and arranged like conventional textbooks on metal, concrete, and wooden layout, it demystifies FRP composites and demonstrates how either new and retrofit building initiatives can particularly take advantage of those fabrics, akin to offshore and waterfront buildings, bridges, parking garages, cooling towers, and business buildings.The code-based layout guidance featured during this publication enable for proven functions to instantly be applied within the genuine global. coated codes and layout instructions contain ACI 440, ASCE Structural Plastics layout handbook, EUROCOMP layout Code, AASHTO necessities, and manufacturer-published layout publications. techniques are supplied to the structural clothier on how one can use this mix of code-like records to layout with FRP profiles.In 4 handy sections, Composites for building covers:* An creation to FRP functions, items and homes, and to the equipment of acquiring the attribute homes of FRP fabrics to be used in structural layout* The layout of concrete structural participants strengthened with FRP reinforcing bars* layout of FRP strengthening platforms comparable to strips, sheets, and materials for upgrading the power and ductility of bolstered concrete structural contributors* The layout of trusses and frames made totally of FRP structural profiles produced via the pultrusion technique

Early work in the United States on FRP strengthening of concrete structures was undertaken for the purpose of seismic retrofitting of reinforced concrete columns. , 1992). This work was followed by further development and testing of FRP column wrapping systems, with research being conducted primarily at UCSD (Priestley and Seible, 1995).

4 FRP STRENGTHENING OF EXISTING STRUCTURAL MEMBERS 15 Simultaneously, a number of researchers in the United States studied flexural strengthening of beams using hand-layup fiber sheets and fabrics of glass or carbon fibers (Saadamanesh, 1994). The Forca tow sheet carbon sheet strengthening system, called the MBrace System (MBrace, 1998), was commercialized in the United States by Master Builders, Inc. of Ohio together with Structural Preservation Systems of Maryland. The Fyfe Company developed and commercialized the Tyfo System (Tyfo, 1998).
