Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Fibre-reinforced polymers (FRPs) are being increasingly used to strengthen metallic
structures. The current best-practice for this technique is described in the recently
published CIRIA report ‘Strengthening Metallic Structures using Externally-Bonded
FRP’. The report covers all aspects of a strengthening scheme, including procurement,
design, installation, and inspection. It is thus of interest to clients, consultants,
contractors, and materials suppliers. This paper gives an overview of the report and
summarises its findings. Aspects of particular importance to strengthening metallic
structures using FRPs are highlighted and discussed.
