Review of design parameters for FRP-RC members detailed according to ACI 440.1R-06
Fares Jnaid and Riyad Aboutaha

    This paper investigates the parameters that control the design of Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) reinforced concrete flexural members proportioned following the ACI 440.1R-06. It investigates the critical parameters that control the flexural design, such as the deflection limits, crack limits, flexural capacity, concrete compressive strength, beam span and cross section, and bar diameter, at various Mean-Ambient Temperatures (MAT). The results of this research suggest that the deflection and cracking requirements are the two most controlling limits for FRP reinforced concrete flexural members.
Key Words
    GFRP; steel; flexural strength; deflection; cracking; reinforcement ratio
