A newly developed type of reinforcement bar for concrete, Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) rebar, can be used advantageously in concrete exposed to marine or corrosive environments. To fully utilize the strength of FRP rebars, they have to be adequately anchored in the concrete. Little experimental data is available about the bond of FRP rebars. In this paper, the results of pullout tests of FRP rebars are presented.
