Since the mid-1990’s, carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) composite systems have been increasingly used for internal rehabilitation and strengthening of large diameter pipelines. The primary type of pipeline rehabilitated using CFRP is PCCP because the segmental manner in which PCCP is constructed and the localized manner in which structural...
