The seawall retrofit and repair project in Charleston, SC, USA, included the application of glass fiber-reinforced polymer (GFRP) reinforcement in all wall components and for the seaside face of the seawall’s full length. GFRP reinforcement was selected for its corrosion resistance and aesthetic performance—no staining of exposed surfaces due to leaching of corrosion products.
