Abstract

This paper entitled Application of Composite Fibre Reinforced Plastic (FRP) Plate as Construction Formwork, looks into the possibilities of implementing FRP as formwork. The main objective of this project is to study the prospects of using FRP plate as formwork for construction. FRP is high in strength, lightweight and durable. These characteristics are essentials for formwork to ensure good performance and long life span, as formworks are usually used many times. Traditional formwork materials such as timber and steel, usually suffer from disfigurement due to corrosion or humidity. Furthermore, difficulties have been experienced in the storage and handling of these traditional material form works. Currently, formworks made from FRP for concrete construction is rarely found due to novelty of FRP material. However, the application of FRP as a strengthening material and retrofitting for structure are quite commonly used. In this project, research is carried out to observe and study the characteristics and properties of FRP as material for formwork. For this study, the scope is narrowed down to the behaviour ofFRP as permanent or stay-in formwork and the methodology for its development. Data gathering in this area was undertaken throughout this project period. The conclusion explains the possibilities of FRP for implementation as permanent form work. Results of analytical calculations and related data analysis are provided in support of the conclusion. This report shall give an overview of the project and consists of five chapters; Chapter 1 is the Introduction, Chapter 2 mainly on Literature Review and Theory, Chapter 3 will include The Methodology and project work, Chapter 4 is the Results and discussion, and lastly Chapter 5 is the conclusion.
