The use of FRP as reinforcement for Concrete Structures has been growing rapidly in recent years. This state-of-the-art report summarizes the current state of knowledge on these materials. In addition to the material properties of the constituents, i.e. resins and fibers, design philosophies for reinforced and prestressed elements are discussed. When the available data warrants, flexure, shear and bond behavior, and serviceability of the members has been examined are also presented.
