Using fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites in bridge construction and monitoring their performance: an overview

B. Wan,    Marquette University, USA

Abstract:

The superstructure and substructure of bridges can be made from all fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP), or from FRP composited with concrete or steel. The different applications of FRP composite materials in bridges are discussed. Common nondestructive evaluation/testing (NDE/NDT) methods are reviewed for their potential application in monitoring FRP bridges. Smart FRP bars and cables can be used to monitor the bridge, as well as help the bridge resist loads. A case study of monitoring a bridge with an FRP stay-in-place formwork deck is presented. A short commentary on likely future ...
