December Presentation: Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer

Join us as we learn the What, Why, When, Where, Who and How of GFRP Reinforcement

Presented By: Alicia Eikenberry, Tuf-N-Lite LLC


Date: December 8th, 2021

Time: 12:00 PM


(See December email for meeting link) 

Alicia has been a practicing professional engineer for over 20 years. A graduate of Cal Poly – San Luis Obispo in Architectural Engineering (BS) and UC- San Diego in Structural Engineering with a focus in FRP Composites (MS). She is a member of ACI 440 committee which is working on the update document from a reference to a design code. Well versed in multiple structural project types, she has focused on industrial & manufacturing for the last 10 years, mostly as a structural manager. As owner of AMDE Structural Consulting, she also started with Tuf-N-Lite in December 2020 when her client approached her for fulltime support of their line of GFRP reinforcement offerings. Since joining the company, she has been working on earning the first ICC-ES ESR report on GFRP rebar under the new Acceptance Criteria 454. With ESR-4664issued, she is transitioning to training for use of the GFRP in construction. Alicia is a member of SEAI, SEAOC, NSPE, ACI lightweight, and sustainable. It is non-corrosive and non-conductive and is the perfect reinforcement solution for environments exposed to water, salt, humidity, high voltage currents, and magnetic fields. With a life span of more than 100 years, it is more durable and is a longer lasting solution over galvanized, epoxy coated, and stainless steel reinforcement.
