Dr. Tatar’s work is published in the leading peer-reviewed journals and conference proceedings in the field. Results of his research on the durability of externally bonded FRP were implemented in the “Guide to Accelerated Conditioning Protocols for Durability Assessment of Internal and External Fiber-Reinforced Polymer Reinforcement” published by the American Concrete Institute (ACI) in 2015.
