Research activities have been taking on place for new construction materials in order to produce more effective constructions. One of the new technological materials is Pultruded Glass Fibre Reinforced Plastic (GFRP) materials. High tensile strength, lightweight and non-corrosive properties allowed GFRP to become a competitive alternative to traditional structural materials. Having resolved fundamental manufacturing constraints through the development of the pultrusion process, the mass adaptation of GFRP sections as primary load bearing elements have been used in a number of civil engineering applications. In this study; compressive strength and flexural properties of hybrid use of GFRP profile with concrete have been investigated. The tests applied on the specimens including plain concrete, GFRP box profiles and concrete filled GFRP profiles to demonstrate the advantages and importance of GFRP profiles used in civil engineering applications.
