Due to corrosion and the continuous demand to increase traffic loads, there is a need for an effective system which can be used to repair and/or strengthen steel bridges and structures. This paper describes an experimental program, recently completed, to investigate the fundamental behavior of steel-concrete composite scaled bridge beams strengthened with new high modulus carbon fiber reinforced polymer (HM CFRP) materials. The behavior of the beams under overloading conditions and fatiguedoi:10.1061/(asce)1090-0268(2007)11:6(659) fatcat:25u43tfjvbejfbhy3726yag3ce
