Title: Fibre reinforced polymers in construction
Subtitle: Long term performance in service

Ref Code: BR461
Authors: S M Halliwell and T Reynolds

Abstract1: The use of fibre reinforced polymers (FRPs) in construction is likely to expand rapidly as construction demands improved performance and cleaner processes. This book gives the background to the application of FRPs in construction, along with issues relating to durability and performance in service. Twenty-seven case studies highlight actual performance in the field both successes and failures. The case study reviews show that, where appropriately designed, polymer composite structures perform well.
