Advanced Composites in Bridge Construction and Repair by Yail Jimmy Kim

By Yail Jimmy Kim

Advanced composite fabrics for bridge constructions are well-known as a promising substitute to traditional development fabrics corresponding to metal.

After an introductory evaluate and an overview of the features of bonds among composites and quasi-brittle constructions, Advanced Composites in Bridge development and Repair studies using complicated composites within the layout and building of bridges, together with harm identity and using huge rupture pressure fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites. the second one a part of the ebook offers key functions of FRP composites in bridge building and service, together with using all-composite superstructures for speeded up bridge building, engineered cementitious composites for bridge decks, carbon fiber-reinforced polymer composites for cable-stayed bridges and for fix of deteriorated bridge substructures, and eventually using FRP composites within the sustainable substitute of growing old bridge superstructures.

Advanced Composites in Bridge building and Repair is a technical consultant for engineering pros requiring an figuring out of using composite fabrics in bridge construction.

  • Reviews key functions of fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites in bridge building and repair
  • Summarizes key contemporary learn within the suitability of complex composite fabrics for bridge buildings instead to standard development materials
