FRP Bridges 2014

11th September 2014 - 12th September 2014

For designers and bridge owners, fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) materials offer distinct advantages over other material that can provide dynamic solutions as well as long term benefits including:

Reduced mass leading to easier, faster and more economic installations.
Superior durability in particular to atmospheric degradation, de-icing salts etc, leading to reduced maintenance requirements.
Ability to form prefabricated complex shapes.
Good electrical and thermal properties which can be utilized to meet specific performance requirements.
Aim of the Event

This 2 day event will showcase the current and future innovations in FRP bridge design, challenging traditional bridge architects and engineers to consider the material in the early stages of the design process.

The event will provide a forum for exchanging ideas, concepts and showcasing recent projects.
