Composite materials are clearly having a major impact on how facilities are designed, constructed, and maintained. In order to enhance the application of fiber-reinforced composites in infrastructure renewal, it will be important to understand the constructability, maintainability, operability, and inspection issues related to the use of fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) structural components. This paper identifies these issues as well as fabrication issues, construction methods, quality, man-hour… CONTINUE READING
