Abstract:
It is the intent of this paper to update developments in the fascinating field of composites. Special topics will include, masonry walls, blast effect technology, and bridge column and bent rehabilitation and arch bridge restoration. "Technology is a queer thing, it brings you great gifts with one on hand and stabs you in the back with the other" (C.P. Snow). It remains for us to keep abreast of the latest developments in composite technology to stimulate our thinking and keep us ahead.
