Composites and Construction: Yesterday, today and tomorrow

J. Manso


We will try to give a idea about the possibilities of the Composites Materials in the Construction area, examining their applications since along time.
We will begin by the integral closing the building, based in the panel sandwich concept.
Immediately we will comment a new material, the COMPOSTEEL, a hybrid product made of composites plus steel, indicated to the structural country.
Next, we will study the "Continuous Frame" oriented also at the structural area.
Finally, we will finish with two ideas:
a) The composites solving the seism phenomenon.
b) The composites as a ceiling to big areas.
