Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP), Carbon, Glass, Aramid and Finite Element Analysis (FEA)


Fiber Reinforced Polymer composites have emerged as an alternative to traditional methods for retrofitting of structures as it increases their axial strength, shear strength and seismic resistance. They are popular because of their high strength/stiffness to weight ratio, corrosion resistance, and ease of installation. The common link among all FRP materials are the use of continuous fibers (carbon, glass, aramid etc.) embedded in a resin matrix, the glue that allows the fibers to work together as a single element (ACI 440.2R-02 2002). This paper focusses on the the efficiency of different fiber reinforced polymers for jacketing such as Carbon Fibre Reinforced Polymer (CFRP), Glass Fibre Reinforced Polymer (GFRP) and Aramid Fibre Reinforced Polymer (AFRP) with respect to orientation of fibres and number of layers through parametric study.
