  • Concrete structures reinforced or pre-stressed with FRP
  • Confinement
  • Design issues/guidelines
  • Durability and long-term performance
  • Field applications and case studies
  • Fire, impact and blast loading
  • FRP as internal reinforcement
  • Hybrid structures of FRP and other materials
  • Inspection and quality assurance
  • Materials and products
  • Practical applications
  • Seismic retrofit of structures
  • Smart FRP structures
  • Standardization issues
  • Strengthening of concrete, steel, masonry and timber structures
  • Sustainability
