This chapter presents a comprehensive overview of prestressed fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites for concrete structures. Of interest are the prestressing methods and flexural responses of such structures. This state-of-the-art review provides a synthesis of all existing prestressing applications for reinforcing or strengthening concrete members, including bonded and unbonded FRP composites. The review examines published codes and design manuals with their limitations, ...
