440 - Fiber-Reinforced Polymer Reinforcement


Committee Mission: Develop and report information on fiber reinforced polymer for internal and external reinforcement of concrete.

Goals: 1) Report on FRP materials, research, products, and industry practice; 2) Develop design guides, specification, standards, and construction practice for practitioners; 3) Develop educational resources including seminars, technical sessions, and symposiums; 4) Organize, promote, and facilitate product competitions that allow students to apply design with the manufacture of concrete products to learn the principals of FRP composites and concrete technology; 5) Provide a forum for technical exchange of information for FRP composites used with reinforced concrete and masonry structures.

Chair: William Gold
