Webinar - FRP as Internal Reinforcement to Concrete Structures

For many years, FRP reinforcing bar has been used internationally in areas where steel is not suitable. Many of the structures relied on the use of ACI Design Guides. This presentation will discuss international infrastructure projects where the risk of corrosion of reinforcing bar was the primary reason to select GFRP reinforcing bar as a suitable reinforcement material. It discusses the important differences in the supply chain between steel and FRP reinforcing bar that should be considered by the contractor or purchaser. It also covers the cost-effectiveness of the solution and the advantages that were gained. The presenter will be Antonio Nanni, PhD, PE, FACI (Professor of Civil Engineering & Inaugural Senior Scholarat the University of Miami)
