BOND STRESS-SLIP BEHAVIOUR OF CLASS C FRP REBARS . PROTECTION OF CONCRETE. PROCEEDINGS OF THE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE HELD AT THE UNIVERSITY OF DUNDEE, SEPTEMBER 11-13, 1990

A newly developed type of reinforcement bar for Portland Cement concrete, Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) rebar, can be used as reinforcement in concrete which will be exposed to marine or corrosive environments. FRP rebars are corrosion resistant and have a high tensile strength. To fully utilize the strength of FRP rebars, however, they have to be adequately anchored in the concrete. FRP rebars do not have the characteristic surface deformations of steel rebars thus their bond in concrete is different and needs to be defined. Little experimental information is available about the bond of FRP rebars. In this paper, the results of bond tests of FRP bars are presented. (Author/TRRL)
