Continuing Education Credit: 0.15 CEU (1.5 PDH)
Approved AIA and ICC
Access Period: 30 days
Fiber-Reinforced Polymers (FRP) Reinforcements have become one of the most used construction materials during the last decade. ACI-440 Committee is leading the writing of design standards and guidelines and is sponsoring these full-sessions. Four 2-hours sessions will highlight and collect the most recent research, development, and application of FRP-Reinforcements in the concrete industry. Numerous important topics related to external and internal FRP-reinforcements will be presented, including in this Part 1: bond strength, mechanical splices, and development length properties of FRP reinforcing bars, and strengthening methods, anchoring methods, and non-destructive testing methods that apply to FRP wrap material.
