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.
