Winners of ACI Fiber-Reinforced Concrete Polymer Composites Competition

The American Concrete Institute has announced the winners of its 2017 Fiber-Reinforced Concrete Polymer Composites Competition.

The competition took place at the Concrete Convention and Exposition in Detroit, MI, USA.

During the competition, students designed, constructed, and tested a concrete structure reinforced with fiber-reinforced polymer bars to achieve the best load-to-cost ratio, predicted the ultimate load, and predicted the load that would result in a piston deflection of 3.5 mm (0.14 in.).
