Proceedings of an international workshop, Composites in Construction: A Reality, held in Capri, Italy, July 20-21, 2001.

This collection contains 29 papers that address the state of the art in fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites for use in construction. FRP composites are expected to significantly improve the performance and durability of new or deteriorated constructed facilities. FRP composites can be used as standalone structural members, as reinforcement for prestressed and nonprestressed concrete, or in combination with other structural materials for new construction or repair/rehabilitation. The increased interest in FRP composites is fueled by innovative manufacturing technologies as well as significantly more stable, stronger constituent materials.

Topics include:

  •  codes and standards;
  •  manufacturing, economics, and construction;
  •  materials, durability, and characterization;
  •  analysis and design; and
  •  outcomes.
