Aslan FRP Design Tools
ACI committee 440 is the most authoritative and prolific consensus standards body involved in the publication of design guidelines for the use of FRP bars.
The Aslan FRP team has been an active participant in 440 committee activities since 1994. Committee 440 documents are based on research performed world-wide.
Design with Aslan 100 GFRP bars is dictated by ACI 440.1R-15, "Guide for the Design and Construction of Structural Concrete Reinforced with FRP Bars".
A fourth iteration of the document, can be purchased from the ACI International bookstore. This document and all other ACI 440 publications are included in the "Manual of Concrete Practice" which many engineering firms obtain.
In November 2009, AASHTO published "AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Guide Specifications for GFRP Reinforced Concrete Decks and Traffic Railings including a Commentary" based on the work of committee T-6.This document gives the American bridge design community some conservative guidelines for implementation of GFRP rebar in decks and railings.
In Europe, the Federation Internationale du Beton FIB Task Group 9.3 has published a technical report "Bulletin 40", which is a "state of the art" of FRP reinforcement in RC structures. Work is under way on provisions for FRP bars in EuroCode 2 format. Norway and Italy have published internal design codes for the use of FRP bars.
