- A Fiber Reinforced
Polymer (FRP) is a composite material comprising a polymer matrix
reinforced with fibers.
- FRP bars are an
alternative to steel rebar in many applications and to steel
plate-bonding techniques for structural strengthening.
reinforcing bar made from filaments or fibers held in a polymeric resin
- The FRP Bar can be made
from various types of fibers such as Glass (GFRP) or Carbon (CFRP).
- Fiber Reinforced
Polymer (FRP) composite technology has been demonstrated with great
success for bridge applications.
- The development of the
advanced FRP composite technology from the aerospace stealth aircraft
and commercial industries is an engineer’s dream for innovative
structural design and application. These outstanding polymer composites
are among the leading materials in structural engineering applications
- FRPs are commonly used
in the aerospace, automotive, marine, and construction
- FRP Bars are intended
for use as concrete reinforcing in areas where steel reinforcing has a
limited life span due to the effects of corrosion.
- FRPs are also used in
situations where electrical or magnetic transparency is needed. In
addition to reinforcing for new concrete construction, FRP bars are used
to structurally strengthen existing masonry, concrete or wood
- Work had already
begun to lower the cost of high performance FRPs and promote substantial
marketing opportunities in sporting goods. By the late the defense
market waned, increased importance was placed by fiber and FRP
manufacturers on cost reduction for the continued growth of the FRP
- The cost of FRP
materials continues to decrease and the need for aggressive
infrastructure renewal becomes increasingly evident in the developed
world, pressure has mounted for the use of these new materials to meet
higher public expectations in terms of infrastructure
Increased use of FRP systems in the construction
industry, and steadily decreasing costs of FRP materials have led to
the development of a wide range of available FRP products for a variety
of specific applications.
- Bridges comprise the
majority of prestressed FRP bars applications.
- Applications of FRP
reinforcement in major and innovative concrete structures have been
facilitated by the development of ‘‘smart structure’’ sensor technology,
thus alleviating the lack of performance data for FRP-reinforced
- Fiber reinforced
polymer profiles have been successfully used in electrical applications
for over 20 years.
- Over eight million
pounds of pultruded fiber reinforced polymer composites support 783
miles of electrical cables and optic fibers that control lighting,
ventilation and communications.
