The durability of reinforced concrete structures is related to the resistance of concrete and reinforcement to aggressive environmental conditions. Depending on the exposure class structure sufficient durability can be achieved by using a suitable concrete class providing coatings of the required thickness or the use of protective coatings for concrete. In practice, however, such protection does not guarantee full protection against corrosion of reinforcing steel. At the time of the appearance of scratches design or due to local damage cover these factors no longer fulfill their function. Accordingly, the reinforcement composite FRP (fiber-reinforced polymer), due to its mechanical and physical properties (high corrosion resistance, high tensile strength, indifference electrical and electromagnetic and ease of cutting), may be a suitable alternative to the classical reinforcing steel.
