Abstract:
The objective of this paper is to present some of the real life applications of fiber reinforced polymers (FRP) in Egypt. The authors of the paper have recently used carbon fiber reinforced polymers (CFRP) with great success to repair several types of structures, which include hotels, administrative buildings, and historical structures. This paper will provide a brief summary of some of the projects repaired or strengthened using CFRP.
