SELF-REPAIR EPOXY MODIFIED MORTAR FOR REHABILITATION AND STRENGTHENING APPLICATIONS USING RFP. IN: POLYMERS IN CONCRETE: THE FIRST THIRTY YEARS

This paper describes the potential use of the innovative self-repair epoxy mortar (SREM) as the adhesive layer for fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) material in strengthening and rehabilitation of existing concrete structures. Proposed is a multi-phase research program examining the different strength, fracture and durability criteria of the SREM-FRP composite discussed. It is expected that the development of the SREM-FRP strengthening/rehabilitation system should eliminate problems associated with inadequate load transfer due to possible substrate cracking and will provide a significant increase in the service life of the RFP strengthening system.
