FRP COMPOSITE PRESTRESSING STRANDS

The experimental evaluation of the carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) stirrup strengths, bond strength of CFRP bars, transfer lengths of CFRP tendons, and shear and flexural responses of CFRP reinforced and prestressed concrete box beams is presented. The shear and flexural design approaches are recommended. In addition, empirical stirrup strength design equations are proposed. This report consists of 6 chapters as follows: (1) Introduction; (2) Literature Review; (3) Experimental Program; (4) Results and Discussion; (5) Design Guidelines and Examples; and (6) Conclusions and Recommendations.
