Abstract: The research presented in this paper program was directed towards determining development length and splice requirements for FRP grids used in the reinforcement of concrete structures. Test results indicate that the ACI 318 provisions for welded wire mesh envelope the development length requirements for FRP grids. This work is one of the steps required to determine the suitability of the FRP material for various structural applications, such as bridge decks or pavements.
