Polymers, an international, peer-reviewed Open Access journal. The Section Polymer Composites and Nanocomposites of Polymers aims to rapidly publish high quality contributions on fundamental and applied science of polymer composite materials.

Understanding the processing–structure–properties relationship is crucial for the development of advanced materials. This book is the first to deal comprehensively with the important topic of the fire behaviour of polymer composite materials.

Composites are used in a diverse range of applications, including land and marine transport, aerospace, the chemical industry, and most branches of civil engineering infrastructure.

It is our belief that fire behaviour is the single most important factor limiting the 5/5(1). About this book. Industrial Polymer Applications provides a comprehensive overview of the diverse properties and applications of thermoset and thermoplastic polymer technologies used routinely in the modification, protection, repair, restoration and bonding of the main classes of industrial engineering materials such as concrete, masonry, wood, metal, rubber, plastic, glass and advanced ceramics.

This paper describes some of the composites initiatives in which the Taylor Woodrow Technology Centre has been involved, in order to highlight examples of how these advanced materials can add value to civil engineering projects.

Polymeric composites comprise fibres of (typically) glass, carbon or aramid embedded within a resin matrix. The use of polymer materials in the construction of buildings, bridges, industrial facilities buildings, and other civil engineering facilities is well established.

In recent years, the use of polymers has had an increasing impact on both new construction and the repair of the aging infrastructure. Fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) composites are used in almost every type of advanced engineering structure, with their usage ranging from aircraft, helicopters and spacecraft through to boats, ships and offshore platforms and to automobiles, sports goods, chemical processing equipment and civil infrastructure such as bridges and buildlings.

The usage of FRP composites continues to grow at an 4/5(1). FRP composites in infrastructure and civil engineering With its distinguished editor and international team of contributors, Developments in fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites for civil engineering is an essential text for researchers and engineers in the field of civil engineering and industries such as bridge and building construction.

The lack of a comprehensive, validated, and easily accessible data base for the durability of fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites as related to civil infrastructure applications has been identified as a critical barrier to widespread acceptance of these materials by structural designers and civil.
