Title: SP-322: A Symposium Honoring Khaled Soudki: Towards Sustainable Infrastructure with Fiber Reinforced Polymer Composites
Author(s): Editor: Raafat El-Hacha
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 368
Abstract:The use of Fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) composite materials in new construction and repair of concrete structures has been growing rapidly in recent years. FRP provides options and benefits not available using traditional materials. The promise of FRP materials lies in their high-strength, lightweight, noncorrosive, nonconducting, and nonmagnetic properties. ACI Committee 440 has published several guides providing recommendations for the use of FRP materials based on available test data, technical reports, and field applications. The aim of these document is to help practitioners implement FRP technology while providing testimony that design and construction with FRP materials systems is rapidly moving from emerging to mainstream technology.
