NetComposites is pleased to announce the programme for its upcoming FRP Bridges conference, the latest in its packed events schedule for 2014.
Taking place on 11-12th September at The Building Centre, London, UK, the conference will showcase current innovations in FRP bridge design through speaker presentations and recent project talks. The final programme includes talks on topics such as bridge design, joining and materials development.
Fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) materials offer distinct advantages over other materials and hold many long-term benefits such as superior durability and the ability to form prefabricated complex shapes. The excellent electrical and thermal properties of FRP’s can be utilised to meet the specific performance requirements of customers, whilst its reduced mass means faster, more economical installations. Despite these benefits, the material is often overlooked during the design process.
FRP Bridges will bring together designers, architects and engineers in an exchange of ideas to consider this material during these early stages of design.
Sue Keighley, Events and Communications Specialist at NetComposites commented “We’re thrilled to be presenting the FRP Bridges conference once again. The event is an excellent opportunity for all areas of the bridge design process to come together, providing a unique combination of ideas and expertise. The comprehensive programme will touch on many important aspects of this material, both celebrating its successes and highlighting its challenges.”
Registration for this event is still open, with an “early-bird” delegate rate available for all registrations received and paid in full by 1st August 2014. Full details are available at the NetComposites website. To download the programme click here.
