Advanced Fiber-Reinforced Composite Materials for Marine Most widely used material in ship hull construction is undoubtedly the steel. Composite materials have become suitable choice for marine construction in 1960s. The usage of the fiber reinforced plastic (FRP) in marine applications offers ability to orient fiber strength, ability to mold complex shapes, low maintenance and
Environmental degradation of composites for marine structures: new Examples of results from some current studies on more environmentally friendly materials including bio-sourced composites will be described first. Then a case study for renewable marine energy applications will be discussed. In both cases, studies were performed first on coupons at the material level, then during structural
Composites In The Marine Industry Composites Manufacturing In depth coverage of applications of composites in the marine industry, including lightweighting hulls and helping vessels become more damage-resistant.
