This book contains the edited papers presented at the Fifth International Conference on High Performance Structures and Materials. The Conference addresses issues involving advanced types of structures, particularly those based on new concepts or new types of materials.
This responds to the need to develop a generation of new materials that are suitable for high performance structures which can easily resist a wide range of external stimuli and react in a non-conventional manner.
The papers presented are arranged into the following subject areas: Material Characterisation; High Performance Concretes; Composite Materials and Structures; Natural Fibre Composites; Adhesion and Adhesives; Damage and Fracture Mechanics; Structural Dynamics and Impact Behaviour; Optimal Design; Behaviour of FRP Structures; Structural Characterisation; Durability and Sustainability of Materials and Structures; Timber Structures; Lightweight Structures; Biomass Composites.
