The Reinforcement of Concrete Structures with Advanced Composites

The problems and costs associated with the corrosion of steel in reinforced concrete structures in aggressive environments have led to the need to develop alternative materials. This paper reviews the use of advanced fibre composites as replacements for steel with particular emphasis on the work of the Eurocrete Programme, and gives examples of applications to date. It concludes with some general guidance on design, in the absence of appropriate standards. J.L. Clarke and Professor P. Waldron
