Conference paper


The improvement of composites materials in the infrastructure and engineering areas in the last years is excellent. Consequently, technological challengers as sophisticated test methods and accurate tools development are generated. Also environmental considerations, which correspond to the mechanical requirements to application of these materials, are fundamental [1].
