A resource for considering the use of fibre polymer composites; from conceptual design to construction.

Forthcoming guidance from the Institution of Structural Engineers (pre-order now). Utilising case studies, readers will gain an understanding of terminology, properties, manufacturing processes, design aspects, structural behaviour, fire, smoke and toxicity performance and sustainability considerations.

The book will provide:
  • 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
