The purpose of the study reported herein is to develop the requirements on materials, design, and installation of carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) renewal and strengthening of distressed prestressed concrete cylinder pipe (PCCP); so that the pipe, when subjected to the exposure environment, design working and transient pressures, gravity loads, and live loads, shall have the necessary strength, reliability, and durability to resist the loads throughout the design life as it continues to degrade in the exposure environment.
