Fibre Reinforced Plastic (FRP), Seismic zones, Retrofitting


In order to meet the need for advanced infrastructure, innovative technologies and new materials started taking its shape in the construction industry. Every technology has its limitations. With structures becoming old there is a requirement of a technique to enhance the health of the existing structure. Including India, japan and China various professionals throughout the world are using fiber reinforced plastic (FRP) for solving issues through effective and cost friendly manner. In the field of civil engineering, use of FRP is limited to certain aspects only but it could be widespread. For countries like India it will boost the infrastructural development by reducing cost and saving money because of durability. With highly moist regions in coastal plane, northeastern parts and Himalayan region have large scope of use of FRP.
