Approved by AIA and ICC

Access Period: 180 days


This course is jointly sponsored by NEx: An ACI Center of Excellence for Nonmetallic Building Materials and the American Concrete Institute (ACI).

This course presents information on designing GFRP-reinforced concrete members to resist shear and torsion per ACI 440.11-22. Concepts including shear resistance provided by concrete, transverse reinforcement contributions, maximum transverse reinforcement spacing, and reinforcement limits for shear and torsion will be discussed. Then, information on detailing GFRP reinforced concrete will be presented. This information will include development length, splices, and detailing requirements for beams. Concepts will be applied using an example for both torsion and detailing.
