Fiber composite materials have been used in a variety of industries, such as aerospace, automotive, shipbuilding, chemical processing, etc., for many years. Their application in civil engineering, however, has been very limited. Their high strength-to-weight ratio and excellent resistance to electrochemical corrosion make them attractive materials for structural applications. This paper presents an overview of some of the applications of nonmetallic, fiber composites in concrete construction.
