• Strengthening of Metallic Structures using Externally Bonded Fibre Reinforced Polymers Composite.

      Lam, Dennis (2007)
      Today¿s engineers spend an increasing proportion of their time on the maintenance and retrofitting of existing structures. Many of these structures were designed for a purpose totally different from that for which they are now employed. The use of buildings has changed over the last few decades especially during the commercial boom in the 1990s and bridge structures are taking on more and more loads as traffic on the roads continues to rise dramatically.
