Strengthening solutions based on FRP systems exhibit superb performance and reliability, as well as providing a cost and time-effective alternative to traditional retrofitting options. Since the 1980s, FRP design guidelines have developed to include different methods and alternative approaches for design, incorporating these options to produce new strengthening solutions. However, these new possibilities can involve complex calculation procedures, making manual design calculations difficult in many situations.
