Quality Control and Monitoring of Frp Applications to Masonry Structures
During the last few decades, fibre-reinforced composite materials (FRP) have been utilised in many civil engineering applications. Their use in strengthening and restoring interventions on existing structures is greatly increasing due to their considerable strength/weight ratio and excellent corrosion resistance, as a consequence of the fact that conservation and restoration of the built heritage of past generations is becoming a key issue.
