High strength composites and infrastructures: Research opportunities

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Use of high strength composites in civil engineering structures started about 20 years ago. The use is growing in rapid phase and a number of new opportunities are being created for the use of this material, known as Fiber Reinforced Polymers (FRP). This paper provides a summary of research supported by National Science Foundation (NSF) and new opportunities. A list of recently completed projects and the abstracts of currently funded projects, presented in this paper, provides breadth and depth of research activities supported by NSF. Research areas cover a wide range of subject areas dealing with materials, mechanics, analysis, design, construction, quality assurance and non-destructive testing.
