Isis Canada Research Network and the publication called “Reinforcing Concrete Structures with Fibre Reinforced Polymers” is an excellent publication to use as a reference point for the design methodologies associated with V-Rod. Please click the link to down load this publication for free.


All design work for V-Rod V-Rod must be designed and specified in accordance with either:

  • American Concrete Institute: ACI 440.1R-06 “Guide for the Design and Construction of Structural Concrete Reinforced with FRP Bars”,
  • Canadian Standards Association: CSA S806(12): ‘Design and Construction of Building Components with Fibre Reinforced Polymers (Basic Code –02, but with updates in May ’02, Dec ’02, May ’04, Nov ’05, Aug ’09)

If bridges are involved, the following code also needs to be considered:

  • CSA S6(–06): ‘Canadian Highway Bridge Design Code’
