To Be Published September 13th 2013 by CRC Press – 280 pages
Series: Spon Research
This book comprehensively covers the behavior and design of fiber reinforced polymer strengthened metallic structures based on existing international research. It begins by outlining the applications, existing design guidance, and the special characteristics of FRP composites within the context of their use in the strengthening of metallic structures. It addresses the bond behavior between FRP and metal, and the strengthening of members, then looks at bending, compression and concentrated forces, and the improvement of fatigue performance. It serves as a detailed resource for engineers, researchers, and graduate students.
