Glass Fibre Reinforcements in Concrete

Tanveer Singh Ahuja | Abhinav Panwar

Abstract: Concrete is the most primarily used material in the construction field followed by steel as reinforcements. The present day scenario is witnessing a fast change in the building material industry and day by day new technologies are replacing the conventionally used materials. Researchers all over the world are working hard to improve concrete by the use of fibres, pozzolanas and other admixtures. Steel is provided in the compression side primarily so as to counter act the weak zone of concrete that is Tension. Though it is considered to be the best for this work but still it gets corroded by the action of the nature thus, arises the topic of looking for a alternative. One of the most common alternatives is Fibre reinforced polymer rebars (FRPs). In the present experimental investigation two processes are combined (I) replacement of Ordinary Concrete with Glass fibre Reinforced Concrete and (II) replacement of ordinary steel rebars with Glass fibre polymer rebars (GFRPs) and thus studied on the changes of Compressive Strength and Ultimate Crushing loads.
