Re: FRP - Temp Reinf.

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I think the original post asked something about ACI 318.  

ACI 318 actually says nothing about any kind of FRP.  Reinforcement is defined in chapter 3 as being steel.  Use of other kinds of reinforcement falls under some section in Chapter 1 that says you can use methods and materials that are not specifically covered in 318,  but you (or someone) must prove that they comply with requirements of 318.  

Some (alot) of the FRP literature refers to ACI 318,  but fails to point this out.
