Summary: Fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) structures for strengthening concrete buildings are a substitute for conventional strengthening strategies, corresponding to metal plate bonding, part growth, and exterior post-tensioning. FRP strengthening platforms use FRP composite fabrics as supplemental externally bonded reinforcement. FRP platforms provide merits over conventional strengthening recommendations: they're light-weight, rather effortless to put in, and are noncorrosive. as a result of the features of FRP fabrics in addition to the habit of individuals reinforced with FRP, particular information at the use of those structures is required. This record deals normal details at the background and use of FRP strengthening platforms; an outline of the original fabric homes of FRP; and committee tips on the engineering, building, and inspection of FRP structures used to reinforce concrete buildings. The proposed directions are in keeping with the data received from experimental study, analytical paintings, and box functions of FRP structures used to reinforce concrete constructions.
