Conference 6 - Composites as a Worthy Alternative to Traditional Materials in the Construction Industry

Thursday March 16 - 2:00pm to 4:45pm
Mezzanine Hall 6 (611)

Conference 6 - Composites as a Worthy Alternative to Traditional Materials in Buildings and Infrastructure

  • Market overview
  • Repair and improvement of existing architectures
  • FRP use in complex structures
  • Flexibility for tailored designs

The absence of official codes and regulations in the building & construction field has long been a hindrance to the use of composite materials. However, with forecasts of accommodation capacities doubling by 2050, the industry needs low mass, low energy consumption materials more than ever. This session will delve into the full potential of composite materials for construction, as well as common issues and their solutions.
