A 23 km (14 mile) long and up to 80 m (262 ft) wide flood mitigation channel in Jizan, Saudi Arabia, is the largest glass fiber-reinforced polymer (GFRP) reinforcing bar project in the world. GFRP bar manufacturer Mateenbar, based in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE), was awarded 50% of the contract. The factory produced almost 6000 km (3730 miles) of GFRP reinforcing bars over 7 months.

The performance of fiber-reinforced shotcrete (FRS) depends on the quality of the shotcrete (its constituents and process), the performance of the fibers, and the interaction between the fibers and the shotcrete matrix. Unfortunately, the latter aspect is too often overlooked when designing an FRS mixture. Getting the most out of FRS is about finding the right “composite” for the situation or application considered and selecting an appropriate test method.

Fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) reinforcement has been successfully used as structural reinforcement in concrete members in buildings and bridges for the past 30 years. FRP resists corrosion and has a high stiffness-to-weight ratio that reduces labor and costs relative to steel. The article discusses how FRP bars and meshes can be used as primary or secondary concrete reinforcement, in compliance with the legally adopted building codes in the United States.

The Concrete Q&A provides an answer for designing a baseplate anchored with rods embedded in a concrete pile cap. To bound a solution for design, two options are considered: a rigid baseplate, with the largest distance from the location of the compression reaction to the critical point, and a flexible baseplate, with the smallest internal lever arm and the largest design axial forces in the anchors.

Scotland’s first design museum, the V&A Dundee in Dundee, Scotland, was opened in September 2018. The three-story building is shaped like two inverted pyramids and has exterior walls that twist both horizontally and vertically. The striated façade comprises 2429 precast concrete panels and invokes images of the cliffs of the Scottish coastline. The building is a hybrid structure of concrete and steelwork with reinforced concrete walls and structural steel floor and roof structures.
