Forthcoming guidance from the Institution of Structural Engineers (pre-order now) that provides:
  • Background to the materials, including properties of the various fibre polymer composites, and how they can relate to construction
  • An overview of how design should be approached, how the materials behave structurally and the tools needed for detailed design
  • Top-level guidance on how the materials are best selected, used and connected (and how to engage effectively with the supply chain)
  • Guidance on how the materials can be engineered to meet fire, smoke and toxicity requirements, and a synopsis of common test methods
  • State-of-the-art usage techniques — with an emphasis on sustainable engineering
  • Case studies of exemplar projects
