Title: Shear Capacity of Concrete Beams with FRP Reinforcement
Author(s): Martin Kurth
Publication: Web Session (Outdated)
Appears on pages(s):
Keywords: FRP Reinforcement, ACI 440.1R-06, concrete exposed to weather, internal FRP reinforcement
Abstract:The nonmagnetic and noncorrosive properties of FRP make it an ideal reinforcement for both concrete exposed and not exposed to weather. Current ACI guidance for designing FRP as internal reinforcement is given in ACI 440.1R-06. This session covers disparate topics ranging from the history and reliability of the code provisions for flexure to strength and serviceability design issues and new applications.
