Advanced fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites for civil engineering applications

S. Moy,     University of Southamptonsa, UK

Abstract:

This chapter deals with the uses of advanced composite materials in the construction industry. After considering the advantages of using composites and methods of fabrication, it outlines the surprisingly wide range of applications of composites. Examples are given from around the world of components and complete buildings and bridges, railway and other infrastructure, geotechnical applications and pipes for the water sector. Finally a number of more unusual or future possibilities are presented.
