Re: Steel Reinforcement Elongation Limit

Thanks for the input.

Initially I committed the fatal error of ASSUMING ... Now I see why in
e-mail less sometimes is less, not more.

I have worked closely with W. Gold and G. Blaszac in the past, as members of
ACI Committee 440 - FRP and sub-committee 440F-Repair.

There are now a few guidelenes on the use of FRP's in construction.
