Abstract:

Retrofitting is the modification of existing structures to improve the performance and durability of the structure. Day to day concrete structure to need retrofitting due to various factors like corrosion, lace of detailing, and failure of bonding etc. In retrofitting, fiber reinforced polymers (FRP) is relatively new technique to strengthen and repair damage of the structures. In this paper, the application of FRP in concrete structures is being investigated for its effectiveness in enhancing structural performance both in terms of strength and ductility. The structural components tested so far include slabs, beams, columns and bridge culverts. So far indicate that retrofitting with FRP offers an attractive alternative to the traditional techniques. In many circumstances, it can provide the most economical (and superior) solution for a structural rehabilitation problem. The manufacturing process of FRP and the field application of FRP is very easy and selected results from experimental and analytical. Seismic retrofit with FRP materials has gained notable acceptance from the civil engineering community in recent years.
