Fibre reinforced composite systems are increasingly used in civil engineering infrastructure applications for strengthening and rehabilitation of reinforced concrete (RC) structures. Composite materials represent a sustainable alternative to new construction because they allow for an extension of the original service life and therefore prevent demolition of existing structures. Promising newly-developed types of matrix that potentially represent a valid, sustainable, and durable alternative to epoxy, employed in fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites, are the so-called inorganic matrices.

Abstract

Fibre reinforced composite systems are increasingly used in civil engineering infrastructure applications for strengthening and rehabilitation of reinforced concrete (RC) structures. Composite materials represent a sustainable alternative to new construction because they allow for an extension of the original service life and therefore prevent demolition of existing structures. Promising newly-developed types of matrix that potentially represent a valid, sustainable, and durable alternative to epoxy, employed in fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites, are the so-called inorganic matrices. Within the broad category of inorganic matrices, cement-based mortars have raised some interest in recent years. This chapter intends to highlight the potentials of this new category of fibre-reinforced composites as a viable alternative to traditional FRP systems. The latest advancements in this field and the new challenges that researchers will face in the future are presented and discussed.
