Fiber Reinforced Composites in Construction Engineering
Fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composites have been used in structural engineering for long time. The abundance of examples in the literature, has emphasized the flexibility in the use of FRP composites and the scope to use them in novel or unconventional ways. These “advanced” materials allow engineers to adopt a different approach to design problems, propose alternative design concepts and redesign structures. Characteristic examples of all – FRP structures in the structural engineering domain are presented in this work.
