GFRP REINFORCEMENT IN CONCRETE – FACTORS AFFECTING BOND PROPERTIES
Hollý I., Sonnenschein R.
pages 378 - 381, full text

Corrosion of steel reinforcement is the major cause of deterioration of existing RC structures. Combined effects of moisture, temperature, and chlorides reduce the alkalinity of concrete and exacerbate the corrosion of steel reinforcement, especially for concrete structures subjected to aggressive environments, such as marine structures and bridges and parking garages exposed to de-icing salts. Glass fiber reinforcement polymer (GFRP) bars are suitable alternatives to steel bars in reinforced concrete applications if durability, electromagnetic transparency, or ease of demolition in temporary constructions is sought, that have to be demolished partially by tunnel boring machines (TBMs). The bond of GFRP reinforcement is different from steel reinforcing bars. This paper presents factors affecting the bond strength between GFRP reinforcement and concrete.
