Durability of Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer (GFRP) Bar Used as Concrete Reinforcement: Temperature Effect
This paper presents calibration of service temperature on the prediction of long-term performance of GFRP bar in reinforced concrete structures. Two approaches, based on monthly average temperature and yearly average temperature are proposed to simulate the real service condition on the RC structure for the study on long-term performance. A design example for the comparison of results by the two approaches is presented.
