Summary:
The feasibility studies on the use of non-metallic continuous fiber reinforcement in reinforced and prestressed concrete structures are presented herein. Experimental results from studies on relaxation, bond and transfer length of Carbon Fiber Composite Cables (CFCC) are presented followed by results of flexural load tests on concrete beams reinforced and prestressed with CFCC. Durability of the CFCC is another prime concern, and hence part of the study also focuses on establishing the durability of the CFCC exposed to aggressive environments like alkali solution and sea water. The basic mechanics that govern the structural behavior of the beams, provide important insight into the potential that CFCC has to offer.
