Abstract

This report addresses the methodology for determining the long-term behavior of bridge structures reinforced with fiber reinforced plastic (FRP) rods. In particular, a review of the existing literature on what has been done and what needs to be done for the development of accelerated test methods, with emphasis on mechanical loads, is presented. The focus of the report is on new, bonded FRP reinforcement for concrete bridge structures. Companion reports address stand-alone FRP systems subjected to mechanical loads, and stand-alone FRP and FRP-concrete systems subjected to environmental loads.
