Title: Guide Examples for Design of Concrete Reinforced with FRP Bars
Author(s): W.K. Feeser and V.L. Brown
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 935-954
Keywords: codes and standards; concrete design; FRP reinforcement
Abstract:This paper presents design examples that illustrate the interaction of designparameters, to examine some of the more critical issues and challenges that arisewhen designing FRP-RC to satisfy ultimate strength and serviceability criteria using theACI 440.1R-03 Guide. A spreadsheet program was written for flexural and serviceabilityanalysis and design of concrete sections reinforced with a single layer of glass orcarbon FRP bars. Analysis and design examples were developed and design aids wereconstructed to assist in economically and efficiently sizing FRP-reinforced concretemembers. Potential difficulties that arise from the inherent nature of FRP-reinforcedconcrete failure modes have been identified and explored.
