Innovations in Geosynthetic Rolled Erosion Control Products: From Forests to Fibers
Over the last 50 years, many different types of geosynthetic rolled erosion control products (RECPs) have emerged, ranging from different structure types to different fiber types. Natural-fiber...

Initial Considerations
The purpose of this section is to aid the line designers in developing their specifications for fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) materials utilized in electric overhead line structures....

Materials and Manufacturing Processes
This chapter introduces the basic materials used in the manufacturing of composite structures. It will help the line designer in understanding how the different elements of the fiber-matrix...

Design Loads
This chapter discusses the types of loadings that should be considered when designing overhead power lines utilizing fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) poles. For infrastructure applications...

Performance-Based Criteria for FRP Products and Materials
In most ways, fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) structures perform similar to wood and steel structures. There are, however, certain differences and these differences are described in this...

Suggested Guidelines for Performance-Based Tests
Although several standard tests are cited in this chapter, these tests are not designed specifically for fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) overhead line structures. There are, in fact, no...

Quality Assurance
The user is responsible for ensuring the quality of products purchased. Therefore, the user of fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) products determines the level of quality that will be accepted....

Assembly and Erection
This chapter is intended to provide recommendations on transporting, handling, assembling, and erecting fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) poles. An important consideration is that FRP poles...

In-Service Considerations
Generally, little or no preventative maintenance is required on fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) poles. This chapter discusses factors that could affect the performance of FRP poles after...

Loading Requirements for FRP Poles Utilized in other than Utility Line Applications

Use of Fiber Reinforced Polymer Composites as Reinforcing Material for Concrete
Although the potential of continuous fiber reinforced polymers (FRPs) was recognized more than 50 years ago, bottlenecks such as vulnerability to static fatigue, ultraviolet radiation,...

Atmospheric Corrosion Resistance of Structural Steels
The main objective of this paper is to provide engineers with data on thickness loss of structural steel members resulting from corrosion. To this end, the writers have collected atmospheric...

Fiber-Reinforced Polymer Composites for Construction—State-of-the-Art Review
A concise state-of-the-art survey of fiber-reinforced polymer (also known as fiber-reinforced plastic) composites for construction applications in civil engineering is presented. The paper...

Advancing Under London
Bored tunnels account for more than 20 percent of the Channel Tunnel Rail Link, the high-speed rail line that will connect the Channel Tunnel with London upon its completion in 2007. In...
