Title: SP-286: A Fracture Approach for FRP-Concrete Structures
Author(s): Editors: Maria Lopez and Christian Carloni / Sponsored by: ACI Committee 440 and Joint ACI-ASCE Committee 446
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 160
Abstract: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.
