Summary expansion
Fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) composite materials have increasingly been used in civil engineering applications in the past three decades. They are ideal for structural applications where high strength-to-weight and stiffness-to-weight ratios are required. Their widespread use, however, has still not been realized of of a number of fundamental issues including: high material costs, a relatively short history of applications, and gaps in the development of established standards. While a good number of technical publications exist, there are relatively few sources providing engineers with the information required to design structures using FRPs. In an effort to fill this apparent gap, the editors have asked for contributions from experts in the field to cover some significant aspects of this broad topic. These contributions have raised critical issues for existing theories and practices relating to civil engineering structural applications. They also show how innovative composites materials can help meet these challenges. Part one discusses general technical issues with chapters on recent development in fiber and fiber arrangements, biofibers, processing techniques, external strengthening of structures, failure modes, and durability assessment. Part two reviews particular types of fiber-reinforced polymers and covers their use in a wide range of civil engineering and structural applications, including their use in disaster-resistant buildings, strengthening steel structures and bridge superstructures
