Description


The frequent use of post-installed reinforcements to rehabilitate and strengthen existing buildings and other structures have made this technology increasingly important. The technology, which connects new structural components to existing concrete structures, offers flexibility in design and construction. The international market, however, has a paucity of guides for the design, installation, and quality control of post-installed reinforcements. Guide for Design, Installation, and Assessment of Post-Installed Reinforcements aims to address this gap by proposing an innovative approach to post-installed reinforcements combined with local design provisions, revealing the possibilities for post-installed reinforcements to designers, contractors, and building control bodies alike.

Praise For…


“This is an excellent guide to the design, installation, and assessment of post-installed reinforcements, written by Ray K. L. Su, Daniel T. W. Looi, and Yanlong Zhang, who have significant expertise in designing concrete structures. As the number of ageing concrete properties in Hong Kong and demands for sustainable built environments worldwide are both increasing, this book offers invaluable and practical guidance on refurbishment and repairs.”—Dennis Lam, University of Bradford

“The timely release of this publication provides comprehensive guidance on the design, installation, and assessment of post-installed reinforcement in concrete construction. Stakeholders benefitted include designers and engineering students, as well as the construction industry in general. The authors are to be commended for producing such an excellently written and extremely valuable resource for the sector.”—Scott Smith, The University of Adelaide
