Applications of Fiber Reinforced Polymer Composites

Description

Fueled by the need to surpass the limitations of conventional materials, recent years have seen a large increase in engineering applications of advanced fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composite materials in many major industries, such as aerospace and defense, automotive, construction, marine, and oil and gas industries. FRP composites are very attractive for use in engineering applications due to their highly favorable material properties, including high strength-to-weight and stiffness-to-weight ratios, corrosion resistance, and light weight. Studies conducted to date have demonstrated numerous advantages offered by FRP composites in various engineering applications. However, there are still a number of technical and implementation issues that need to be resolved prior to broader uptake of the application of FRP composites by some engineering communities such as civil construction. This special issue is aimed at disseminating the most recent advances and developments in this exciting field.

We invite authors to submit original research and review articles dealing with cutting-edge issues on research and application of FRP composites.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Test methods of FRP composites
  • Failure criteria of FRP composites
  • Nanotechnology and recent developments in FRP nanocomposites for engineering applications
  • Hybrid-FRP, all-FRP, and smart-FRP structures and structural components
  • New design and manufacturing technologies for FRP composite components and structures
  • Testing and characterization of FRP components for engineering applications
  • Durability and long-term performance of composites, structural elements, and systems
  • Fatigue performance of composites, structural elements, and systems
  • Behavior of composites, structural elements, and systems under elevated temperature
  • Design and retrofit of structures and structural components for improved resilience against extreme events
  • External strengthening of structures with FRP composites
  • Reinforcement or prestressing of structures with FRP composites
  • Structural health monitoring systems for composite structures
  • Field applications and case studies
  • Codes and design guidelines
