If you have a question about this talk, please contact Katerina Ondrova.

The theme of my talk will be to introduce to you the execution of Fibre Reinforced Polymer (FRP) shapes and systems in new build applications. Following a summary on processing technologies for the thin-walled components, recent case studies will be presented to show why and how this newer construction material is used in structural engineering. The talk will also summarise research with FRP shapes at Warwick University and give my thoughts on the drafting of a new Standard for Load Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) of Pultruded Fiber-Reinforced Polymer Structures. Specific reference will be given to the provisions for the design of bolted connections and how one of the resistance formulae was formulated. To look into the future, as we seek engineered solutions for low carbon construction, the talk will acquaint you with the Startlink lightweight building system that is for the superstructure of housing units rated at Code level 6.
