Paper Title:
Study of Crack Width of the Fiber Reinforced Polymer Beam
  Abstract

Fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) is a new kind of material for structural engineering in recent year. The partial inferiority of the bond and mechanical properties for FRP bars, however, leads to wider cracks compared with those of steel-reinforced concrete structures. Therefore, current design methods for predicting crack widths developed in concrete structures reinforced with steel bars at service load may not be used for concrete structures reinforced with FRP bars. This paper presents an analytical formula that calculates the maximum crack with in FRP- reinforced concrete beam, taking into account both the bond and the mechanical properties of FRP bars. The experimental results compared well with those proposed by the model.
