Abstract:In Japan, FRP reinforcement has been regarded as the substitute structural material for steel bars in reinforced concrete elements. The Architectural Institute of Japan (AIJ) has formed the Committee of Continuous Fiber Composite Material to address the need for use of FRP in the future. Paper concerns evaluating FRP and FRP reinforced concrete elements from a structural viewpoint. The evaluation of new materials such as FRP outside the parameters of standard building codes is difficult. It is also potentially dangerous to evaluate a new material according to conventional standards. Therefore, this paper encompasses the tendency of present research and standards, together with suggestions to promote the future use of FRP and FRP reinforced concrete elements.
