Evaluation of Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymers (GFRP) Spirals in Corrosion Resistant Concrete Piles

The objectives of this project are: (1) Develop impactor and test setup for pile driving simulation to extend the capabilities of Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) Structure Research Center Pendulum. (2) Experimentally evaluate the response of carbon fiber reinforced polymers (CFRP), glass fiber reinforced polymers (GRFP) and steel ties under impact loading and bending. (3) Experimentally evaluate the confinement behavior at a pile cut-off location. (4) Develop analytical and numerical models to explain the observed behavior, to provide guidelines for piles that are not experimentally tested. (5) Design GFRP/CFRP hybrid ties that meet the loading requirements.
