INTRODUCTION
  • Rapid advances in construction material
    technology have enabled the construction industry
    to build sustainable concrete structure while
    ensuring safety, functionality and economy. Lets
    compare modern materials (FRP) with traditional
    materials (Steel) to figure out future solutions.

BRIEF COMPARISON
FRP Composites
Traditional materials
  • 1. Corrosion resistance

FRP resists a broad range of corrosive chemicals
and keep the concrete protected against moisture.
Steel is subject to corrosion and oxidation. This
is why it requires galvanizing.

  • 2. Strength

FRP composites are superior in terms of tensile
strength
Steel is a homogeneous material

  • 3. Weight

FRP composites are ¼ the weight of steel. They
offer ease of installation and transportation.
Steel is a heavy material require lifting
equipment during installation and transportation.

BRIEF COMPARISON
FRP Composites
Traditional materials
  • 4. Stiffness

FRP composites are 3.3 times more rigid than wood
and cannot be deformed permanently.
Traditional materials cannot match FRPs in terms
of stiffness and modulus of elasticity.

BRIEF COMPARISON
FRP Composites
Traditional materials
  • 5. Fabrication

FRP composites can be field-fabricated using
simple equipment.
Steel often requires welding and it takes heavy
equipment to erect and install steel.

  • 6. Environmental impact

FRP composites are known for being environmental
friendly construction materials.
Steel is also not hazardous.

  • 7. Electrical conductivity

FRP composites are non-conductive thus ideal for
various sensitive applications.
Steel conducts electricity.

  • 8. Thermal characteristics

FRP composites are good insulator with low
thermal conductivity.
Steel conducts heat.

  • 9. Cost

FRP composites require lower installation and
maintenance cost
Steel offers lower initial cost but can be
expensive in the long-run .

CONCLUSION
  • FRP composites completely outsmart traditional
    materials in many areas. The promising
    in-practice results clearly reflect the potential
    of FRPs in building sustainable and
    cost-effective concrete infrastructure.
