CICE is the official conference of International Institute for FRP in Construction (IIFC) and brings together the FRP research community and industry to share and discuss recent developments and future perspectives in the field.
On Monday 24 July, Prof. Luigi Ascione of the University of Salerno will present the paper Design of Fibre-Polymer Composite Structures (CEN/TS 19101): Overview, Commentary and Worked Examples.
During the current revision of the first generation of Eurocodes, which started in 2016 and will end in 2025, the European Community decided to start to develop a Eurocode for fibre-polymer composite structures. According to the CEN procedure, a Eurocode has to be preceded by a Technical Specification (TS) and, after a period of trial use, the TS can then be converted into a Eurocode. This paper gives an overview of the European TS CEN/TS 19101: 2022, published in November 2022, and of two of its complementary documents, respectively a commentary, of about 1000 pages, and a collection of 15 worked examples.
Two further papers about CEN/TS 19101 will be presented during the conference session:
- Design of Fibre-Polymer Composite Structures (CEN/TS 19101): Serviceability Limit States and Creep Rupture;
- Design of Fibre-Polymer Composite Structures (CEN/TS 19101): Basis of Design and Effects of Temperature and Moisture.
