Durability of Composites for Civil Structural Applications
Given the increasing use of fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites in structural civil engineering, there is a vital need for critical information related to the overall durability and performance of these new materials under harsh and changing conditions. Durability of composites for civil and structural applications provides a thorough overview of key aspects of the durability of FRP composites for designers and practising engineers.
Composed in 1899 by Scott Joplin this charming ragtime medley was his first published one preceding Maple Leaf Rag by 6 months. Before this he had composed a few marches and a waltz and though this is a rag by title it resembles a cakewalk closer and draws heavily on folk tunes. Featuring 5 themes like the posthumously published Reflection Rag it…
Part one discusses general aspects of composite durability. Chapters examine mechanisms of degradation such as moisture, aqueous solutions, UV radiation, temperature, fatigue and wear. Part two then discusses ways of using FRP composites, including strengthening and rehabilitating existing structures with FRP composites, and monitoring techniques such as structural health monitoring.
Durability of composites for civil and structural applications provides practising engineers, decision makers and students with a useful and fundamental guide to the use of FRP composites within civil and structural engineering.
