Evaluation of GFRP Spirals in Corrosion Resistant Concrete Piles

This project will: (1) develop impactor and test setup for pile driving simulation to extend the capabilities of the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) Structures Research Center Pendulum; (2) experimentally evaluate the response of CFRP, GFRP 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; and (5) design GFRP or GFRP/CFRP hybrid ties that meet the loading requirements.
