NEW PROJECT: ENHANCING THE EFFICIENCY OF FRP STRENGTHENED REINFORCED CONCRETE STRUCTURES. ANALYSIS AND DESIGN OF ANCHORAGE SYSTEMS TO AVOID PREMATURE DEBONDING FAILURE AND INFLUENCE OF ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS

EffAnCom is a new project recently funded within the last call of the R&I Projects of the “Agencia Estatal de Investigación” of the Ministry of Science and Innovation of the Spanish Government.

The project is coordinated with the Polytechnic University of Madrid (UPM) and will start on the 1st September, with the aim to study new anchorage systems applicable to elements strengthened in flexure with Fibre Reinforced Polymer (FRP) laminates, putting special attention on the debonding mechanism of the FRP-concrete joint.

AMADE will open a PhD position to develop research activities within the EffAnCom project.
