FRP Reinforcing Question

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
To All -
 I just finished inspecting a concrete structure reinforced with FRP rebar. We specified manufacturer supplied 90 degree bent #5 dowels as part of the design. I noticed at the corners of the bent dowels that the bar "flattens". Is this typical for FRP rebar bent dowels?
