The chapter discusses the use of one type of thermoset polymer, polyester, and its use as a matrix material in fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites. It begins with an overview of FRP composites, before explaining why polyester is a particularly suitable material for this application, through discussion of its key properties and structures and the manufacturing processes involved. Composites can offer improved mechanical properties compared with pure polymers at no extra cost, meaning that they are widely used in a variety

Fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites are increasingly being used in the field of civil engineering, either for the rehabilitation/retrofitting of existing infrastructures or for the construction of new structural elements. However, such applications are still recent and there are still unresolved questions regarding the long-term durability of FRP reinforcements or structural elements under service conditions, and their behaviour under accidental fire events as well. In this chapter, it is proposed to highlight the basic mechanisms involved in the environmental degradation

The term liquid composite moulding (LCM) encompasses a family of processes in which a dry fibrous reinforcement is impregnated by a liquid resin inside a sealed cavity. As the understanding and control of these processes improve, their field of application widens. LCM processes can be used as a replacement to decrease the environmental impact and improve the quality of composite parts made via traditional open-mould processes. they can also provide a cost-cutting alternative to prepreg techniques while maintaining a high

To ensure better performance for a range of existing reinforced concrete structures in seismic regions with substandard structural details, seismic retrofit is an economical solution. Hence, this chapter presents some of the available results in which fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites can be used for damage-controllable structures. For example, the performance of existing reinforced concrete structures whose components are vulnerable to shear failure, flexural-compression failure, joint reinforcement bond failure, or longitudinal reinforcement lap splice failure and retrofitted with FRPs is described.

An overview is presented of four groups of static load tests to determine the mechanical properties of pultruded GFRP materials and structures. The first group includes standard and non-standard tests on material samples. The second group encompasses bending, buckling and collapse load tests on structural elements. The third and fourth groups include tests on bolted joints and sub-structures/full-scale structures, respectively. Throughout the overview, the difficulties of simulating practical support and loading conditions and monitoring deformations are emphasised. Future developments

This chapter briefly discusses the performance and durability of bonded composite systems used for on-site rehabilitation of timber and concrete structures. In spite of some recent developments, the exploitation of their full potential is still often restrained by the lack of structural design guidance, standards for durability assessment and on-site acceptance testing. Therefore, this chapter provides a review of current understanding on the use of hybrid bonded composite systems on the construction site in terms of structural repair, reinforcement, and

There is strong evidence that the oil and gas industry has become increasingly interested in using pipes and risers made of fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) composite materials. Moreover, oil and gas exploration nowadays has to be conducted in much deeper water depths (500–1500m and deeper), thus requiring more resilient and lighter materials. in this section various applications of FRP in relation to pipes and risers are discussed to familiarise the reader with various FRP and hybrid pipes.

Thermosets such as phenolic thermosets are brittle at room temperature. Thus, in applications where good mechanical properties are required thermosets must be combined with reinforcements to improve these properties. Composites based on thermoset matrices can substitute for steel and concrete in some applications of civil construction structures because of their higher resistance to oxidation than steel and better freeze–thaw resistance than concrete. Furthermore, phenolic composites can be produced with complex shapes, and with careful design, materials can be obtained

Despite considerable potential and many advantages over conventional materials, composites are making limited progress in the field of infrastructure applications, where the only niche market for composites is in FRP deck construction over steel girders and externally bonded FRP repair. The reasons, of course, are to be found in their high initial cost compared with conventional materials. This can only be addressed through the use of large-volume automated processes such as pultrusion and filament winding, which have the potential to
