Abstract: The Journal of Composites for Construction publishes original research papers, review papers, and case studies dealing with the use of fiber-reinforced composite materials in construction. Of special interest are papers that bridge the gap between research in the mechanics and manufacturing science of composite materials and the analysis and design of large civil engineering structural systems and their construction processes. The journal publishes papers about composite materials consisting of continuous synthetic fibers and matrices for use in civil engineering structures and subjected to the loadings and environments of the infrastructure. The journal also publishes papers about composite materials used in conjunction with traditional construction materials such as steel, concrete, and timber, either as reinforcing members or in hybrid systems for both new construction and for repair and rehabilitation of existing structures.
