Get Started

Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer (GFRP) reinforcement in concrete was first introduced over 25 years ago by way of ACI 440R, but prior to TMS 402/602 2022, no companion guidelines existed for masonry construction. The new Appendix D of TMS 402/602 is a first standard in the U.S. for the use of GFRP reinforcement in masonry.  GFRP reinforcement has applications in masonry for specialty use near electromagnetic equipment and in locations exposed to severe environments. Learn how to use the new Appendix D to design and specify GFRP reinforced masonry for your next project.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define the scope and limitations of use of the new Appendix D to TMS 402/602 2022
  • Understand how GFRP reinforcement differs from steel reinforcement and the resulting differences in design philosophy
  • Identify design parameters for GFRP reinforced masonry including strength reduction factors. flexural strength, shear strength, deflection limits, and creep rupture
  • Review design examples implementing the new Appendix D provisions
