Steel-free hybrid reinforcement system for reinforced concrete flexural members
"New materials and design methods are being investigated for the design of bridge components to alleviate the current devastating corrosion problems. A research project was initiated at the University of Missouri (UM) and the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) to develop a nonferrous hybrid reinforcement system for concrete bridge decks by using continuous fiber-reinforced-polymer (FRP) rebars and discrete randomly distributed polypropylene fibers. This hybrid system may eliminate problems related to corrosion of steel reinforcement while providing requisite strength, stiffness, and desired ductility, which are shortcomings of FRP reinforcement system in reinforced concrete"--Abstract, page iii.
