ABSTRACT

Reinforced Concrete (RC) is a widely used composite material in construction. It is composed of concrete with high compressive strength and steel bars and stirrups of high tensile strength placed longitudinally and transversely, complementing each other in overcoming their weaknesses. Corrosion of steel reinforcement and cement sustainability are two main persistent issues creating great difficulty in the entire construction industry across the globe. Sincere efforts were also made to replace ordinary Portland cement with geopolymer cement, and steel reinforcements with fiber reinforcement for more than two decades. Different combinations were tried in using them for beams, slabs, columns, and combinations of the above. Though researchers have shown many leads in the research, no concrete proofs were made about the better combinations and the structural code for common usage. In this paper, available literature were reviewed in detail and summarized. A study was carried out for the intended purpose to identify focus areas for further research, and it is listed.
