4 Easy Steps to Complete a PDHengineer webinar

Reinforced concrete has as its main failure mechanism the corrosion and spalling of steel rebar. DOT's and engineers have for 40+ years attempted to remedy this concern, with varying success. In 2004, ACI published its first guide on GFRP (fiberglass) rebar for use in concrete structures. AASHTO and FHWA followed suit in 2009 with their own guideline.

This webinar presents an overview of GFRP (fiberglass) rebar, which is one of the growing alternatives in the bridge and transportation arenas today.

GFRP use is steadily growing, amidst other old (and some new) product options. Civil and structural engineers must be knowledgeable about GFRP use and design as many DOT's are now requiring that certain projects or regions incorporate products that will enable a 75 - 100 year service life.

The cost of this webinar is subsidized in part by a commercial sponsor.

Specific Knowledge or Skill Obtained

This course teaches the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • History, improvements, and manufacturing of GFRP rebar
  • Discussions of relevant guidelines and specifications: ACI, AASHTO, ASTM, ICC
  • States using or having approved GFRP rebar (DOT)
  • Field considerations of GFRP rebar, including placement and CRSI
  • Design and engineering considerations and formulas of GFRP rebar. Designing with failure by means of concrete crushing.
  • Cost considerations of GFRP vs. alternative bars (upfront costs and life cycle)
