Degradation Mechanisms and Service Life Estimation of Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Concrete Reinforcements

The objectives of the project are to: (1) determine the alkali resistance of carbon fiber pre-stressing strand under load; (2) determine the degradation mechanisms of carbon fiber pre-stressing strand in concrete; (3) determine the degradation mechanisms of glass fiber reinforced polymer (GFRP) rebar in concrete; and (4) develop testing protocol to evaluate the service life of fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) reinforcements in concrete based on degradation mechanisms.
