Design of FRP-Reinforced Concrete Structures

12 Professional Development Hours

After participating in this course, you will be able to:

  • Know the different types of fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites
  • Know the properties of FRP bars
  • Design of concrete structures internally reinforced with FRP bars
  • Check serviceability limit states of FRP-RC structures

This course covers the applications of fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites as internal reinforcement for new concrete structures. It presents the mechanical and physical properties of FRP materials used in civil structures.

The approach used in this course is to review the fundamental structural behaviour of different FRP-reinforced concrete structural elements: modes of failure; ultimate strength in flexure, shear, and axial; serviceability limits, crack width, and deflection; development and splice lengths. The design procedures follow the latest Canadian and American standards and guidelines for FRP composites in concrete structures.

This course will provide several solved design examples and will introduce specialized software for designing FRP-RC beams.
