This paper presents the physical and mechanical characteristics of a new glass-fiber reinforcing rod which was developed to be used as a rebar for concrete structures or a tendon for grouted anchors. On the basis of these properties, the paper gives also some design examples of concrete elements reinforced with these glass-fiber rods and grouted anchors.
