Evaluation of corrosion-resistant basalt-fiber-reinforced polymer bars and carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer grid reinforcement to replace steel in precast concrete underground utility vaults.
(Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute, 2016-09)
Underground utility vaults are widely used to house utilities and are conventionally designed using steel reinforcement. These structures are often designed with thicker cover concrete in an attempt to prevent the corrosion ...
Nonlinear finite element of FRP reinforced concrete structures.
reinforcement is a non-corrosive alternative to steel and is gaining popularity for use in reinforced concrete structures exposed to corrosive environments. A major difference between the two reinforcing materials is their ...
