Printer-friendly version

ASTM International Committee D30 on Composite Materials invites all interested parties to participate in a new task group on fiber-reinforced polymers. The task group is under the jurisdiction of Subcommittee D30.05 on Structural Test Methods.

The purpose of the new task group is to review a series of tests that the American Concrete Institute has developed through their Committee 440 on Fiber-Reinforced Polymer Reinforcement. The ACI committee has decided to convert some of these material tests, which come under the title Guide Test Methods for Fiber-Reinforced Polymers (FRPs) for Reinforcing or Strengthening Concrete Structures, into ASTM International standards. The new task group will review the tests and promulgate them through the ASTM process.

For further technical information, contact Russell Gentry, Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, Ga. (phone: 404/894-3845; russell.gentry@arch.gatech.edu); or Adam Sawicki, Boeing Company, Philadelphia, Pa. (phone: 610/591-2807; Adam.J.Sawicki@boeing.com). Committee D30 will meet Nov. 16-18, at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel, Los Angeles, Calif. For membership or meeting details, contact Jim Olshefsky, ASTM International (phone: 610/832-9714; jolshefs@astm.org).
