NEx Workshop on FRP Reinforced Concrete: User Experiences and Success Stories, Part 2 of 2

Wednesday, April 5, 2023  2:00 PM - 5:00 PM, Franciscan C&D

Open to all ACI Convention attendees.
Refreshments will be provided to all participants.
The purpose of this workshop is to educate attendees on the user experiences – owners, designers, and contractors – on working with FRP reinforcement.

Sales and use of FRP reinforcement in construction applications worldwide have been increasing for the last several years. This workshop is a continuation of the 1st NEx workshop that focused on designing with GFRP reinforced concrete using ACI 440.11-22 Code by providing an overview of field applications and user experiences with FRP reinforced concrete. Discussion will cover many advantages offered by FRP reinforcement with emphasis on the benefits of the FRP bars, their lightness, non-corrosive nature, easiness of placement in hot and cold weather, and user experiences and any challenges with transition from the conventional reinforcement to the FRP one. The speakers will include owners (DOT/ building officials), designers, and contractors.

This is a great opportunity for engineers, owners, contractors, consultants, students, and manufacturers to get familiar with the experiences from day-to-day projects using FRP reinforcement. Come and learn real stories how FRP rebar is used in transportation infrastructure, commercial buildings, residential construction, and marine applications.

No presentations scheduled at this time.
