Performance of Glass Fiber-Reinforced Polymer Reinforcing Bars in Tropical Environments - Part II: Microstructural Tests

In this part of a two-part paper, the authors pursue microstructural studies of glass fiber reinforced polymer (GFRP) reinforcing bars in concrete, including the nature, quantum, and mechanism of deterioration. A scanning electron microscope was used to show the changes in the microstructure. Energy-dispersive x-ray analysis (EDX) and inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) were used to determine the chemical changes in the composite.
