Fiber-Reinforced Polymers (FRP) materials are used to rehabilitate and strengthen structures systems and components including but not limited to concrete bridges, columns, marine piers, metallic and concrete pipes, metallic and concrete piles, parking garages, and even storage tanks structures. The growing appeal of this rehabilitation process consists of two primary purposes; to increase shear and load capacity and repair and prevent corrosion degradation.
New for 2018! This NACE International state-of-the-art report contains information about materials that provide a corrosion-resistant alternative to plain carbon steel reinforcing bar (rebar). The report is intended for use by engineers when considering the use of alternative concrete reinforcement and post- or prestressing strand materials with higher corrosion resistance than that of conventional carbon steel alloys.
