RESEARCH PAYS OFF: FIBER-REINFORCED POLYMER COMPOSITES FOR STRENGTHENING BRIDGES IN OREGON

The historic Horsetail Falls Bridge, located in the Columbia River Gorge, 30 mi (48 km) east of Portland, Oregon, was built in 1914 and was not designed to carry the traffic loads that are common today. This article discusses the use of fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites for bridge strengthening and the benefits that have been realized.
