With the advent of advanced composite materials in the form of fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP), which has a high strength-to-weight ratio, high stiffness-to-weight ratio, and most importantly non-corrodible characteristics, these innovative FRP materials have been utilized in many demonstration projects across the world as internal reinforcements, external reinforcements, and prestressing tendons/strands. Outcomes of the research carried out on the demonstration projects using FRP materials have shown the potential of FRP materials as efficient construction materials requiring least maintenance and hence, providing minimal life cycle cost of structures reinforced and/or prestressed with FRP materials. In addition to normal reinforcements and prestressing applications, FRP has been utilized as external strengthening material to retrofit the deficient structures and to upgrade the strength of the structure to meet new code specifications and loading situations.
