Tunnels play an essential role in our day-to-day lives due to their importance in the mass transit and utility industries. Commuters in large metropolitan areas depend on tunnels for efficient and lower cost transportation. However, many are aging, and those built with concrete and steel materials deteriorate in the damp environment. Repairing them is a difficult undertaking and can have a major impact on the lives of public users. For example, the tight spaces and harsh conditions in which they were built make repairs and reinforcement with traditional materials more expensive in terms of time and money. Fortunately, Fiberglass Reinforced Polymer (FRP) is an excellent alternative to conventional tunnel construction materials.
There are many advantages to using FRP as a reinforcement material for tunnels such as:
FRP can be used for many purposes in tunnel projects. For example:
