Abstract

This paper is a comprehensive background document on the state of the art in European seismic design provisions which was assembled by fib committee 5.1 to support the development of design guidelines regarding the use of externally applied fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) materials in the seismic retrofitting of reinforced concrete structures. In the context of developing design guidelines, the underlying mechanistic models that support the derivation of provisions were assembled following critical evaluation of the existing proposals and with careful reference to the experimental evidence available, the comparative assessment of past models in the literature and requirements established from first principles.
