This study through intensive static and impact tests demonstrated the possibility of replacing conventional Portland cement concrete beams with steel reinforcements by greener ambient-cured geopolymer concrete (GPC) beams reinforced with corrosion-resistant basalt fibre reinforced polymer (BFRP) bars. Analytical formulae were also derived by taking into consideration the unique material properties of GPC and BFRP, and verified against testing results for design analysis of this new type of sustainable and durable structures in construction.
