Strengthening of concrete structures with CFRP :shear strengthening and full scale applications
Abstract (Summary)Structures can be in need of strengtheing due to many reasons, which are presented in this thesis. A literature review gives the existing methods for enhancing a structures load bearing capacity. In this thesis focus will be set at external bonding with carbon fibre reinforced polymers. A theory for shear strengthing is presented and compared to laboratory test. Full-scale applications with measurements are evaluated and presented. Finally, some topics for further research are given.
