"Concrete structures are continuously exposed to environmental effect, leading to degradation of concrete and corrosion of steel. This is a worldwide problem. FRP has been increasingly used to rehabilitate and retrofit reinforced concrete structures. Although design guidelines have been developed in several countries, there is still no comprehensive textbook on strengthening concrete with FRP. Thus, this book is in time. It will benefit not only university students, but also engineering communities." --An Chen, Department of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering, Iowa State University, Ames, USA
