Advanced composites such as a fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) are promising materials for civil infrastructure application. Despite their relatively short history in research and implementation, significant advances have been made over the last two decades. Federal and municipal agencies now accept these non-conventional construction materials. Practitioners are eager to use them for their projects to improve the sustainability of constructed structural members. The objective of this book, Advanced Composites in
Bridge Construction and Repair is to identify current scientific challenges facing the infrastructure community, and to address them for the benefit of the general public, technically and socioeconomically.
