FRP Reinforcement

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

When reinforcing an existing concrete beam with FRP, do we just design for a brittle failure since it doesn’t yield?  I know ACI has a document but I don’t have it and I want to confirm that designing the reinforcing is a matter of simple mechanics, as with normal steel reinforcing.  Is there anything I’m missing?


I just need enough to explain to our client how we want to do it.
