Retrofit and Repair of Reinforced Concrete Walls With FRP: A Review of Experimental Investigations

Published

Abstract

Retrofit and repair of structures occur under differing circumstances but are both necessary to improve existing building stock and increase resilience of communities against hazards. FRP is an attractive option for both retrofit and repair because of its lightweight properties, corrosion resistant qualities, and ease of application. This paper compiles a literature review on structural behavior of RC shear walls after retrofit or repair with FRP. Details such as the FRP configuration, materials, and wall shape of FRP-retrofitted shear walls are presented. This paper concludes with potential future research topics to gain better understanding on the performance of FRP-retrofitted walls.
