Repair, Retrofit and Strengthening (RAS)

Repair, Retrofit and Strengthening (RAS) publishes advanced articles for repairing, retrofitting and strengthening methodologies and experimental research which exploit new structural rehabilitation and upgrading techniques such as prestressing methods, FRP jacketing and carbon fiber wrapping. The development of latest technology of polyester and epoxy resin, injections, crack analysis, delamination/debonding of composite layer and their durability in both dry/under water condition before and after repairing were also covered. The analysis of structural softwares such as ABAQUS, ANSYS, and MIDAS FEA as validation benhmark with experimental results were also accepted.

The aim of the journal is to make any rehabilitation techniques focusing on the latest methodology in experimental and constructions stages considering their complexity for statics/dynamics aspect that take into account their materially and geometrically nonlinearities in the short/long term evaluations before and after retrofit of the concrete and steel structures.
