Virtual-Webinar


 Directions

Conventional methods for strengthening or rehabilitating existing reinforced concrete structures may be disruptive, difficult to implement and cost-prohibitive.  Externally bonded FRP composites provide an alternative means for accomplishing strengthening or rehabilitation.  This webinar will introduce externally bonded FRP composites, where we will examine the components and material types, performance characteristics, applications, strengthening limits, codes and standards, fundamental design concepts, and application examples.  Upon completion, attendees will have an understanding of externally bonded FRP composites for strengthening existing concrete structures, applicable codes and standards, appropriate application types, and the design resources available from manufacturers.

 

Date/Time: Wed April 28th 12:00pm-1:30pm EST

Continuing Ed: 1.5 PDHs

Sponsored by: Simpson Strong-Tie

Presenter: J. Bret Turley, M.S., P.E., Senior Composite Strengthening Systems Engineer
