Use of Polymer Composite in Bridge Rehabilitation

Authors(6) :-Ronak Parmar, Darshak Rabara, Priyanka Rana, Urja Machhi, Urvee Panchal, Maulik Kansagra

The need for innovative construction techniques and sustainable construction materials has completely reshaped the construction industry. Following the need for high-performance and environmentally-protected construction materials, FRP composites have gained gradual but wide acceptance from civil engineers around the world. Properties like high tensile strength, ease of installation, low maintenance cost, and resistance against harsh environmental conditions give FRP composites a clear advantage over traditional construction materials. The application of fiber reinforced polymer in civil construction ranges from rehabilitation of existing reinforced concrete (RC) to building new projects.
