Fiber-reinforced polymers (FRP) are being increasingly used in the construction industry. One application is to use FRP bars as reinforcement in concrete. This report presents a study of the behavior of bridge deck overhangs built with FRP bars when subjected to pendulum impact forces. Researchers tested four specimens. Two of the specimens were reinforced with conventional steel bars, and two were reinforced with FRP bars. This report presents a comparison between the results obtained with the two systems.
