NEW YORK TESTS FRP : FIBER-REINFORCED POLYMER LAMINATES HELD THEIR BOND TO CONCRETE AFTER TWO YEARS

Fiber-reinforced polymer laminates (FRP) have been found to be effective components in bridge strengthening projects. A recent report revealed that laminates used in a 1999 New York bridge retrofit project to improve the load carrying capacity of a T-Beam bridge have maintained the quality of their bond to the concrete. No changes in the effectiveness of the retrofit system were detected. Agencies have discovered that using FRP laminates in retrofit projects is a cost- effective way to rehabilitate deteriorated reinforced-concrete bridges.
