The technique of strengthening reinforced concrete structures by means of epoxy bonded steel plates becomes more and more familiar in renovation industry. It shows to be a reliable and fast repair method, not only under normal laboratory conditions but also under atmospheric and sustained loading conditions. The creep effects in the epoxy joint are very limited, without affecting the mechanical strength of the connection. The preparation of the elements and the execution of the repairing operation turns out to be of great importance. At high temperatures, a weakening of the epoxy-joint appears which calls for insulating measures.
