Guide for Design, Installation, and Assessment of Post-installed Reinforcements sets out the installation, design, and assessment guidelines for post-installed reinforcements and fills a much-needed gap in the literature. The technology of post-installed reinforcement is growing increasingly important since reinforcing bars are being used frequently in horizontal, vertical, and overhead applications on the rehabilitation and strengthening of existing structures. Post-installed reinforcements are also used in specific situations in new construction to simplify construction procedures and provide flexibility in design and construction.

This book has its main focus on Hong Kong but sets a standard that could be followed both in the Mainland and beyond.

Ray K. L. Su is an associate professor at the University of Hong Kong, and a fellow of the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers and the Institution of Structural Engineers. Daniel T. W. Looi is a lecturer and course coordinator for the civil engineering programme at Swinburne University of Technology, Sarawak campus, Malaysia. Yanlong Zhang is a doctoral candidate in the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Hong Kong.

 

‘This is an excellent guide to the design, installation, and assessment of post-installed reinforcements, written by Ray K. L. Su, Daniel T. W. Looi, and Yanlong Zhang, who have significant expertise in designing concrete structures. As the number of ageing concrete properties in Hong Kong and demands for sustainable built environments worldwide are both increasing, this book offers invaluable and practical guidance on refurbishment and repairs.’ —Dennis Lam, University of Bradford

‘The timely release of this publication provides comprehensive guidance on the design, installation, and assessment of post-installed reinforcement in concrete construction. Stakeholders benefitted include designers and engineering students, as well as the construction industry in general. The authors are to be commended for producing such an excellently written and extremely valuable resource for the sector.’ —Scott Smith, The University of Adelaide
