Conference 4 - Composites as a Worthy Alternative to Traditional Materials in Buildings and Infrastructure

Wednesday June 21 - 1:00pm to 3:45pm

Conference 4 - Composites as a Worthy Alternative to Traditional Materials in Buildings and Infrastructure

  • Flexibility for tailored, hybrid, designs
  • FRP use in complex structures
  • Alternative epoxy systems
  • Flexibility for tailored designs

There are no structural reasons justifying the lack of composite materials use in architecture, but so far, architects have been reluctant to taking them into consideration. Often, the full potential of composites remains untapped, and the issues that need to be addressed such as fire proofing, UV resistance, etc. constitute an obstacle to their generalization. This session will develop how to take advantage of composite materials’ properties thanks to various case studies.
