... on highways and bridges. Much of the bridge and highway infrastructure is comprised of reinforced concrete, so a discussion of concrete and its role as an electrolyte follows. The next section addresses reinforcement, including conventional, prestressed, cable stays, and corrosion-resistant reinforcement...

... as replacements for conventional steel members have been corrosion resistance, light weight, and performance attributes. Composite rebar, used for the reinforcement of concrete, is already commercially available in a variety of configurations using carbon, glass, and aramid fibers, and has found application...

... that prestressing steel may be even more deleteriously affected by chloride-induced corrosion than conventional reinforcing steel. Limits can be placed on the amount of chloride permissible within the concrete from any source. Therefore, chloride-bearing aggregate could have a considerable influence...

.... Clearly, the same approach can be extended to much more complex structures as demonstrated by several studies from the automotive sector. Moldings can be made successfully using most conventional forms of mat and fabric reinforcements. The two important exceptions to this rule are chopped- strand mats...

... of reinforcement types and volume fractions using both conventional casting and wrought aluminum alloys as the matrix. Most traditional casting alloys increase their fluidity through the addition of elements such as silicon. Because PIC is a pressure casting process, it does not need to rely on the inherent...

... promising new market opportunity for composite materials today is infrastructure. Composite solutions for repair and strengthening of bridges and buildings can be considerably less expensive and faster than conventional steel and reinforced concrete. Major earthquakes in California, Japan, and Italy since...

... spaces without requiring vibration. The need for this technology has grown over the years as designers specify more heavily reinforced concrete members and ever more complex formwork. Until recently, the industry used superplasticizing admixtures in conventional mixes in an attempt to duplicate...

... holes. Alumina fiber reinforced MMCs are difficult to machine. In one case, conventional high-speed steel twist drills had a tool life of less than one hole. The following guidelines for drilling, turning, and milling are based on studies of aluminum-matrix composites reinforced with alumina Fiber FP...
