Discover the potential of GFRP (Glass Fibre Reinforced Polymer), or fiberglass, as a viable solution for infrastructure projects.

The webinar recording begins with a practical introduction to composites in construction. Dr Bryan Barragan then presents key material properties leading to short and long-term advantages, an overview of codes and standards, and case studies demonstrating the successful implementation of infrastructure solutions featuring fiberglass reinforced concrete.

Key learning objectives include:

  • Glass-based composites in construction
  • Initial and long-term benefits and savings from the use of GFRP rebars in infrastructure
  • Codes and standards supporting fiberglass reinforced concrete design
  • Proven applications expanding the scope of use
