Abstract: This proceedings of the Specialty Conference on Advanced Composites Materials in Civil Engineering held in Las Vegas on January 31–February 1, 1991 contains 40 papers from ten technical sessions. The sessions cover a broad range of topics on advanced composites. The main topics presented include materials processing and fabrication; mechanical properties; reinforcement for concrete; prestressing cables; analysis and testing including field applications, and the properties of pultruded structures. These papers present the civil engineer with the recent developments in advanced composite materials and their various uses.
