Title: SP-138: Fiber-Reinforced-Plastic Reinforcement for Concrete Structures - International Symposium
Author(s): Editors: Antonio Nanni and Charles W. Dolan / Sponsored by: ACI Committee 440 and Joint ACI-ASCE Committee 423
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 977
Abstract:"The American Concrete Institute sponsored an unprecedented six technical sessions on FRP Reinforcement for Concrete at the Vancouver Conference on March 28-31, 1993. Speakers and attendees were present from Europe, Japan, Canada and the United States. The papers in this Special Publication are organized in the same subject areas as the conference. The subject topic areas and symposium sections are: 1. FRP Material Properties and Testing Methods 2. FRP Reinforcement for Reinforced Concrete 3. FRP Reinforcement for Prestressed Concrete 4. Analysis And Design 5. The Japanese National Project for FRP Development 6. Applications of FRP Reinforcement The 55 technical papers in this report represent the most comprehensive compilation to date of FRP research, design, and application information. A comparison of the papers provides an insight to the approach to the use and development of FRP reinforcement within the research communities of Europe, Japan and North America. The two symposium volumes are also significant because substantial portions of the extensive Japanese national research project have been translated into English. The Japanese papers provide an insight to both the magnitude of the technical work being conducted in Japan and the organization of the Japanese research program."
