Abstract
The use of carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) tendons instead of steel cables is a promising method for improving the overall performance of cable structures. However, compared with CFRP sheet, research of the CFRP tendons is insufficient. In this paper, the state of the art of the applications and researches of CFRP in engineering structures is summarized and analyzed according to the statistics results of academic papers. Based on statistics results, the research hotspots, problems, and developments of applications of CFRP tendons are proposed and summarized. At last, some new researches of the CFRP tendons about its orthotropic mechanical property are introduced and analyzed.
