Abstract

Nowadays, the reinforcement is used by green concrete, coated steel sheet, reinforcement, fiber reinforced such as carbon, aramid, and glass as earthquake reinforcement methods for concrete structures. regard the reinforcing structures and buildings against earthquake forces in the future, only simple methods for lowering prices should not be considered and the earthquake behaviors should be completely transparent. In this article, after a brief description of the FRP and fibres that can be used into its, a simple, new and inexpensive way to reinforce concrete structures to increase the earthquake capacity of these buildings has been investigated. This method uses short fibres using vinylester to provide a new mix of materials for an earthquake reinforcement. The short fibres of carbon and glass with vinyl- ester resin is sprayed into the desired place in a concrete structure. This means that is called spraying the FRP.
