A review on environmental durability of CFRP strengthened system

Fawzia, Sabrina & Kabir, Md Humayun (2012) A review on environmental durability of CFRP strengthened system. In Proceedings of the Australian Structural Engineering Conference 2012, Engineers Australia, Perth, WA, pp. 1-8.


Recently the use of the carbon fibre reinforced polymer(CFRP) composites appears to be an excellent solution for retrofitting and strengthening of concrete and steel structures because of its superior physical and mechanical properties through the integration of other materials. However, the overall functionality and durability under various environmental conditions of the system has not yet been well documented. This paper reviews the environmental durability of CFRP strengthened system that has received only small coverage in previous review articles. Future research topics have also been indentified, such as durability of steel circular hollow section under various environmental conditions subjected to bending. Environment of interests are moisture/solution, alkalinity, creep/relaxation, fatigue, fire, thermal effects (including freeze-thaw), and ultraviolet exposure.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
