Influence of Long-Term Exposure in the Concrete of FRP Rebars on Bond Characteristics


Article Preview

The current experimental research is devoted to comparison of bond glass fiber reinforced plastic with concrete before and after long-term (quarter year, half year and one year) exposure in the concrete on the air and in the water. The comparative analysis of experimental results was performed.
