Abstract

Construction produces a third of global carbon emissions. These emissions cause global warming and contribute to climate emergency. There is a need to encourage use of sustainable and eco-friendly materials to effectively deal with climate emergency. Fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) is an eco-friendly material with low carbon footprint. FRP composites in civil engineering are mainly used in three applications: (1) FRP profiles in new-build; (2) FRP reinforcing bar in concrete members and (3) FRP in repair and rehabilitation of existing structures. This chapter presents basic properties of constituent materials (fibres and polymer resins), mechanical properties of FRP bars, strengthening systems and profiles, manufacturing processes and civil engineering applications of FRP composites. Durability, sustainability and recycling of FRP composites are also discussed.

KeywordsFRP structures; FRP in buildings and bridges; FRP in structural engineering; resins and fibres; sustainability of FRP; durability of FRP; recycling of FRP
