Title

Development length of straight GFRP and CFRP bars embedded in normal weight concrete

Author

Nathan Newman

Abstract

"This thesis presents an analytical study performed on concrete girders reinforced with FRP bars with the goal of evaluating current ACI 440 design equations for FRP development lengths. The analytical model is based on finite element formulation of embedded bar problems with inelastic constitutive laws for the constituent materials...The analytical study resulted in the proposal of a refined design equation for development length of FRP bars for consideration by current building and bridge design codes"--Abstract, leaf iii.
