Punching shear behaviour of slab-column edge connections reinforced with fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) composite bars

The use of fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) composites as an alternate to steel has proved to be an effective solution to the corrosion problem. However, FRP bars have low axial and transverse stiffness compared to steel bars which results in a lower shear capacity of FRP reinforced concrete (RC) elem...
