The use of Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) has recently increased in marine structures, with a minimum of engineering analysis and design evolution. Although fiberglass has been used for many years in small recreational and high-performance boats, a range of new composite materials is now being utilized for various applications. The objective of this report is to examine the use of FRP and other composite materials in marine construction; determine important considerations in past design; review developments in related industries; predict areas for future marine applications; and recommend future research needs. Reference information for this project included investigations of previous researchers, materials manufacturers data, and marine industry survey results. The publication is organized into chapters on applications, materials, design, performance, fabrication, testing, and reference.
