Abstract

Conventional bridge building materials, like timber and steel, have problems that can limit their expected service life. These problems include termite and fungi attack for timber, and corrosion for steel. These problems do not affect the hybrid concrete-composite bridge produced by Wagners Composite Fibre Technologies. However, the use of composite materials in the infrastructure industry is relatively new. Their wide acceptance by the industry is therefore tributary on assessing their long-term durability.
