Subjects Construction Materials
Summary This paper will discuss the utilization of composite materials in construction projects and also provides the number of field studies to support the ever-increasing utilization of composite structures in Building and Construction projects. Composite materials are those manufactured from two or more constituents generally with different physical and/or chemical arrangement. Such process, thus produces a material with characteristics dissimilar from the individual components. Moreover, these individual components remain separate and distinct within the finished material's internal structure. The purpose of this mechanism is to produce materials, which are stronger, lighter, or less expensive when compared to traditional materials. In the construction and engineering projects the composite materials typically include, Concrete, Fiber-reinforced polymer and Geo-polymer among others. Such composite materials are generally employed for buildings, bridges, and other structures such as walls, floors, and platforms. Nevertheless, all of these materials need to be able to handle various demanding environments such as high winds and seismic conditions which are common dilemmas for high-rise structures.
