The size of loads wearing on the railroad and highway systems have increased in recent years. For concrete structures with a very long life and also under difficult conditions, it is not uncommon that measures must be taken to improve the structure's durability or its load bearing capacity. Recently, the use of advanced composites in external bonding of extra reinforcement has become an accepted method. However, there are some drawbacks to this method, including that the pretreatment of the concrete surface is highly work intensive and time consuming, as well as quality concerns. With the improved plate bonding presented in this paper, the aforementioned problems are less troublesome. The technique has also been tested with a cementitious bonding agent.
