In the last 25 years, fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) composite materials have been considered to be used in various civil engineering applications such as the cooling tower system, waste water treatment plant, pedestrian bridges, reinforced concrete rebars, structure strengthening members, and some metallic sensitive specialized buildings. This review of study is only concentrated on the experimental investigation of GFRP composite compression members made from glass-fiber and polyester-based and vinylester-based polymers in a pultrusion process.
