This CD-ROM contains 10 papers sponsored by ACI committees 440 & 446. The papers provide information on recent developments on the use of the framework of fracture mechanics to evaluate the performance of reinforced concrete (RC) structures strengthened with FRP composites. The information provided is useful to researcher and practicing engineer by presenting experimental and analytical tools based on a fracture approach that can assess the shear and flexural capacity of strengthened RC members.
