Design and Detailing of Anchorages for Externally Bonded CFRP

The objectives of this research are (1) to perform a synthesis of existing research on the topic of carbon fiber reinforced polymers (CFRP) anchorage design and detailing with interest in externally bonded shear strengthening and other externally bonded end anchorage applications, and (2) to provide modifications to the current design and detailing guidance within Volume 4 of the Structures Detailing Manual (SDM) along with construction specification guidance for installation and quality control. The CFRP anchorage alternatives will be evaluated based on developed criteria, and, at a minimum, include structural effectiveness, cost, invasiveness to the concrete section, and level of complexity during installation. The synthesis and guidance will include prestressed and reinforced concrete sections.
