APPLICATION OF BFRP REBAR IN THE SEAWALLS
Seawall is a type of retaining walls that is designed to stabilize the soil from collapsing into the waterway, and to simply protect the buildings and foundations from moving or overturning. Seawalls interact with soil from one side and interfaces with water from other side.
Therefore, it is highly exposed to seawater and regardless of the concrete cover thickness, the internal reinforcing bars would be under attack of the salt from seawater, where the presence of chloride ions expedites the rate of degradation.
Vulnerability of steel to moisture and aggressive environments has been causing serious problem for steel reinforced concrete structures, which increases costs for maintenance and repair of decayed structures. Substitution of steel with a noncorrosive material is a feasible solution to increase effective life of structures and decrease maintenance costs.
The noncorrosive behavior of the BFRP Rebar, as well as its water-resistance characteristics combined with excellent drainage properties make it a good solution for coastal concrete structures.
BFRP Rebar is perfect for Marine environments and Chemical plants where corrosion is a continuous concern.
