Re: FRP - Temp Reinf.

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Just curious.  Do you really need to use FRP bars?  What's driving your decision to go that route?  Have you considered using galvanized or epoxy coated bars or cathodic protection?  Or maybe just plain bars with more cover or denser concrete?  Seems like FRP would be real expensive and hard to construct.  If I recall correctly, FRP bars can't be bent.  Could there be an easier solution?
