Topic Title:         Concrete Strengthening

Presenter:          F. Keith Bohren, P.E.


Topic Description: 

This presentation will discuss various methods of strengthening existing concrete members with a focus on FRP (fiber-reinforced polymer) and FRCM (fabric-reinforced cementitious matrix). As FRP & FRCM are becoming more popular it is also important to know the limitations of strengthening systems used on your projects. This presentation will discuss some of the benefits and limitations of design and application of FRP & FRCM and the tools to know what questions to ask on your next strengthening project.
