|A Critical Review on Glass Fiber-Reinforced Polymer Bars as Reinforcement in Flexural Members
|Trupti Amit, Kinjawadekar
|Since the nineteenth century, reinforced concrete was evolved as a crucial material for construction. This popular composite material is broadly used in different building typologies. However, the decaying of steel rebar due to corrosion is identified as a hindrance that can affect the quality of reinforced concrete structures. In reference to this, the glass fiber-reinforced polymer (GFRP) bar is essential because of corrosion-resistant properties. The researchers performed various tests and numerical analysis to know the response of GFRP-reinforced flexural members in shear and bending. Based on studies over the last decade, this study critically analyzes the response of flexural member reinforced using glass fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) bars. Understanding the behavior of the FRP bar as the alternating reinforcing material will be aided by this review.
