Applications of Composite Spatial Structure
The application of fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) rebar to large Span Spatial Structure is one of the topics in forward position nationwide and internationally. The properties of FRP rebar, such as high tensile strength, light weight, strong resistance to corrosion and fatigue, material design ability and weight reduction and so on, pave the way to its application to Large Span Spatial Structure. Based on the summary of relevant studies at home and abroad, the applications and research of FRP, such as CFRP poles, Composite Laminated Plate and FRP light roof, rebar to Large Span Spatial Structure are introduced in the paper. Finally, the prospects and some problems needed to further researched are put forward.
