|Publication Date:||1 April 2010|
This guideline provides information on the selection and design
of FRP systems limited to externally bonded FRP laminates and
For masonry with significant deterioration, questionable mortar bond, and cracking and/or element displacement, traditional procedures may be required as well as FRP strengthening. The evaluation for the need to apply traditional modes of strengthening is not covered in this guide.
