video talks about the replacement of the normal beam (concrete or
steel) with the sustainable Hybrid Composite Beam (HCB). It shows
that HCB as an alternative solution for bridge construction that it
takes advantages of durability and flexibility by combining the
strength and stiffness of normal concrete and steel with the light
weight and corrosion resistant advantages of fiber reinforced
polymers (its weight 10% of concrete and 33% of steel). Its strength
capacity consistently exceeds code requirements (elastic under load
as highest as 3.5 times of the legal load). The HCB has significant
characteristics such as low cost, easy transportation, strong and
long lasting with less maintenance.
