A high level meeting in QLD to dispel our black art

6 September 2012

While there is enthusiasm for using composites, the technology remains a black art for many. In recognition that FRPcomposites could be used with great advantage in civil infrastructure, a meeting was held in July between composite industry stakeholders and the Queensland Department of Transport &Main Roads. The meeting was a platform to introduce the oncepts of fibre composites to the DTMR, in particular, marine beacons, pylons, marine walkways, including beams, posts and decking. A vote of appreciation goes to Simon Adams of LV Composites for organising the meeting.
