Fatigue Behaviour of Steel Girders Strengthened with Prestressed CFRP Strips

Steel bridges and structures often need strengthening due to increased live loads, or repair due to corrosion or fatigue cracking. This thesis explores the use of adhesively bonded prestressed carbon fibre reinforced polymers (CFRP) strips in retrofitting intact steel girders, through experimental a...
