A new family of composite materials, based on uni-directional, high-strength twisted steel wires of fine diameter, that can be impregnated with thermo-set (SRP) or cementitious (SRG) resin system is now available. This paper discusses two case studies where steel-reinforced polymer materials have been applied: a car part and a bridge. The first reports on tests performed up to failure in full-scale prestressed concrete double-T beams. The second reports on the application of such materials to strengthen a bridge in Missouri, USA.
