Download or read book entitled Advanced Fibre-reinforced Polymer (FRP) Composites for Structural Applications by author: Jiping Bai which was release on 27 September 2021 and published by Woodhead Publishing Limited with total page 906 pages . This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Advanced fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composites have become essential materials in the building and repair of civil infrastructure. This wide ranging book reviews key developments in the use of these materials. There are sections on fiber-reinforced polymer composites and assessments of the material performance, processing and applications. Part one introduces materials used in the creation of advanced FRP composites including polyester, vinylester and epoxy resins. Chapters in part two goes on to explore the processing and fabrication of advanced FRP composites and includes contributions on prepreg processing and filament winding processes. Part three highlights properties of advanced FRP composites and discusses how performance can be managed and tested. The conclusion reviews applications of advanced FRP composites, including bridge engineering, pipe rehabilitation in the oil and gas industry and sustainable energy production.
