Advanced Composite Systems have become an accepted means of upgrading, strengthening, and rehabilitating civil engineering structures in the United States and abroad.  They have been used with tremendous success since the early 1990’s in applications such as external reinforcement, building retrofits, seismic strengthening, blast hardening, bridge repairs and many others.  Industry design guidelines and approvals are currently available in many countries, including the United States, Canada, Germany, France and Japan.

Fiber Reinforced Polymers (FRP’s) have become a viable and accepted means of upgrading, strengthening, and rehabilitating structures throughout the world.  Typical applications include external reinforcement, façade repairs, seismic upgrades, change in use, building alterations and innovative anchoring techniques.  This presentation will describe successful installation of these various systems including a discussion of the relevant building codes, fire protection requirements and design software programs as it relates to FRP composites. Case studies will be presented to showcase the use of these materials in the field and demonstrate the economic viability available to building owners and property managers.
