The objectives of this study are to review and evaluate the developments and applications of pultruded fiber-reinforced polymer composites in civil and structural engineering and review advances in research and developments. Several case applications are reviewed. The paper presents a state-of-the-art review of fundamental research on the behavior of pultruded fiber reinforced polymer closed sections and highlights gaps in knowledge and areas of potential further research.
- fibre reinforced polymer composites
- behaviour of FRPs tubular sections
- pultruded FRP tubular profiles
- FRP tubes in bridges
- applications of pultruded FRP tubes
- new-build with FRP tubes
