Horizontal and vertical continuities can be provided through the use of CFRP for rehabilitating existing reinforced concrete structures that were designed prior to the introduction of codes that require continuous reinforcement along members and between adjacent members. The vulnerability of such structures to collapse can be reduced through rehabilitation.5.1 OVERVIEW Based on the test results, design guidelines for CFRP rehabilitation for existing reinforced concrete structures with poor detailing for continuity of reinforcement subjected to extreme loads such as loss of support due to blast oranbsp;...
