New Reinforced Concrete (RC) Structures

Chair: Lluis TORRES (ES)
Co-Chair: Kypros PILAKOUTAS (UK)

The low stiffness and lack of ductility of FRPs affect the behaviour of FRP RC elements at both serviceability (higher deflections and wider cracks) and ultimate limit states (brittle failure modes), thus differing greatly from conventional steel RC elements. This Action will focus on the following issues:
  • Serviceability requirements
  • New products and prefabricated solutions
  • Long-term behaviour
  • Behaviour of FRP RC elements exposed to fire or elevated temperatures
