Title

Flexural Behavior of Fiber-Reinforced-Concrete Beams Reinforced with FRP Rebars

Abstract

The main objective of this study was to develop a nonferrous hybrid reinforcement system for concrete bridge decks by using continuous fiber-reinforcedpolymer (FRP) rebars and discrete randomly distributed polypropylene fibers. This hybrid system has the potential to eliminate problems related to corrosion of steel reinforcement while providing requisite strength, stiffness, and desired ductility, which are shortcomings of the FRP reinforcement system in reinforced concrete structures.
