|Title:||Connections of Fiber-Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Structural Members: A Review of the State of the Art|
|Published:||August 01, 2000|
|Abstract:||This review of the state of the art of connections of Fiber-reinforced polymers (FRP) members covers primary structural connections (whose integrity is crucial to the functioning and safety of a structure), in which at least one of the members is made of FRP. The connections consist of mechanical joints, bonded joints, interlocking joints, or a combination of those, such as frame connections. FRP connection design in civil infrastructure is coming onto its own, after an earlier period of benefiting from aerospace research and imitation of steel connections.|
