Non-destructive infrared thermography tests were done to study the interfacial bond between concrete and wrap. Thermograms were recorded to identify the presence of localized delaminations in the wrapped specimens. Infrared thermography was also used to examine delamination size increase in aged specimens, and no detectable growth was observed with thermography.The FHWA, 1995 reports that nearly 32% of the nationa#39;s 581, 942 bridges need to be repaired/rehabilitated or replaced. Rehabilitation and retrofit of existing structures is traditionally done using steel or reinforced concrete jacketing. To ensureanbsp;...
