DIAZ PEREZ, Isel del Carmen  y  VEGA AGUILAR, Aylet. Design of reinforced concrete tanks with glass fiber reinforced polymer bars. riha [online]. 2021, vol.42, n.2, pp.3-13.  Epub 07-Jun-2021. ISSN 1680-0338.

Many of the existing deposits in Cuba exceed their years of useful life and show a high degree of deterioration mainly due to the cracking and corrosion of the steel reinforcement. Several solutions have been given over the years to prevent corrosion, but none have solved the problem, concluding that the ideal is to replace steel with a non-corrosive material such as fiber reinforced polymers (FRP). This paper proposes the design of the walls of two case studies, using FRP bars as concrete reinforcement. The results show that even when the design requires a greater amount of FRP bars than in a similar design with steel, to cracking control, the use of these bars is a feasible solution in terms of durability and useful life of the structure.
