Title: SP-230: 7th International Symposium on Fiber-Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Reinforcement for Concrete Structures
Author(s): Editors: Carol K. Shield, John P. Busel, Stephanie L. Walkup and Doug D. Gremel / Sponsored by: ACI Committee 440

Abstract:This two volume set contains 95 papers from the 7th International Symposium and includes chapters devoted to materials characterization, masonry, bond, external strengthening, serviceability, design and behavior of members internally reinforced with FRP composites, FRP used for confinement, field applications, extreme events, and durability. The technical papers not only emphasize the experimental, analytical, and numerical validations of using FRP composites for externally strengthening or internally reinforcing concrete structures, but most are aimed at providing the insight needed for improving existing design guidelines. Several papers discuss the proposed design guidelines for deflections, shear strength, and reinforcing masonry, which practitioners should find useful. New applications are also featured, including studies and design equations for the use of near-surface-mounted FRP products, use of steel-reinforced polymer for reinforcing concrete, and the use of FRP to retrofit structures for blast mitigation. FRP composites performance is presented in chapters on durability and extreme events.
