Objectives of the project: The proposed project aims to study the feasibility of recycling GFRP composites in infrastructure applications. The proposed research will involve:
- Developing a method to characterize the residual strength and service life of the salvaged FRP material.
- Developing the technique to allow the recycled material to act as reinforcement in concrete structures.
- Developing guidelines for using the recycled material as internal reinforcement in RC members.
