Flexural Behaviour of GFRP Bars
Reinforced Cement Concrete RCC structures are usually reinforced with steel bars which are subjected to corrosion at critical temperatures and atmospheric conditions. Also the cost of steel reinforcement plays a significant role in any RCC construction. The rising prices of steel and their unavailability throughout the year have brought the contractors and engineers into a great trouble. The RCC structures can also be reinforced with other materials such as fibers specifically Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer and Carbon Reinforced Fiber Polymer GFRP . This deals with the study of RCC beams when reinforced with the Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer GFRP as a replacement of steel reinforcement and studying the behavior of beam under flexure.
