Abstract:Use of ACM in the form of FRP laminates in rehabilitation of concrete structures is the prime application of ACM in Egypt. FRP laminates are applied for strengthening reinforced concrete slabs or beams in flexure and shear as well as for confinement of reinforced concrete columns. This paper briefly introduces selected projects to demonstrate the current practice of FRP in Egypt. In the first application, carbon FRP (CFRP) laminates in the form of strips and sheets were applied to strengthen a public building suffering from differential settlement of the foundation. In a different application, CFRP laminates were used to upgrade a residential building to be used for commercial purpose. The paper summarizes the design aspects, construction details and recommendations for future application of ACM.
