This paper presents the activities developed at Politecnico di Milano that deal with the use of glass fibre reinforced polymers (GFRP) rebars for the internal reinforcement of concrete structural elements. Problems related to experimental characterization of the rebars, to bond of GFRP rebars and concrete, to fatigue of GFRP reinforced slabs and to the effect of elevated temperature on GFRP reinforced beams are discussed after showing the outcomes of the experimental tests conducted. All these studies support the view that GFRP rebars can be used profitably in some structural elements particularly exposed to corrosion.
