Finite element analysis of thin GFRC panels reinforced with FRP

gfrc used in lightweight "Benecia Bridge" sectionsIn this article by G.B.Kim, K. Pilakoutas, and P.Waldron, use of FRP in GFRC for flexural strength is investigated. Results of the study show that GFRC re-enforced with FRP increases in flexural strength tremendously, creating spans of up to 3 meters! Check out this article at :

 At our workshop we are working to improve the use of our GFRC as a matrix to hold elements of energy. We can use our admixture to hold LED lighting, solar panels or energy dyes.
