Exploring the benefits and principles of strengthening historic concrete structures using carbon fibre reinforced polymers (FRP) and how these are implemented in the Eurocode 2, second generation.

This webinar provides an overview of the principles for FRP strengthening and an update on the FRP section in the Eurocode 2, second generation, and it delves into how to assess feasibility for using FRP as a remediation option for historic concrete structures.
 
Experts on the field provide case studies to showcase common pitfalls and best practices for its implementation on site, as well as quality assurance considerations and a reflection on the positive sustainability implications of its application for strengthening.

Reasons to watch

  • Understand the principles behind designing systems for flexural, shear and column strengthening

  • Get an update on the FRP section of the second generation of Eurocode 2

  • Learn the economic benefits of using carbon-fibre as a strengthening solution

  • Discover the societal and sustainability implications of FRP-based strengthening of existing concrete structures

  • Hear case studies that showcase the main forms of carbon fibre materials used in structural strengthening and how they are applied on site, including practical advice on successful installation and quality assurance

Intended for

  • Engineers involved in the assessment and retrofit of historic concrete structures

  • Designers interested in the practical implementation of advanced composite as a retrofit solution

  • Academic researchers and students wishing to stay ahead of the curve in FRP science

​Speakers

Antony Darby Professor of Structural Performance and Design, University of Bath

Antony's research involves strengthening concrete structures FRPs. He co-authored two editions of the Concrete Society's TR55, UK's design guidance for strengthening concrete structures, and is UK's principal expert on the Eurocode 2 committee, responsible for drafting the new appendix on strengthening concrete structures using FRP.

Steve Holmes Senior Technical Manager, Sika

Steve is Sika’s Senior Technical Manager for structural refurbishment and flooring teams. He has a degree in Materials Engineering and an Engineering Doctorate from Loughborough University. He has been working in the construction materials sector in various roles for 18 years and with FRP structural strengthening for just over two years.
