BELLINGHAM, WA, Dec. 9, 2004 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- The American Composites Manufacturers Association announces the Special Engineer and End-user Technical Program associated with the 2005 Conference on FRP in Corrosion, Construction, and Infrastructure to be held at the Riviera Casino & Resort in Las Vegas from March 8-11.

Presented under the theme of "Composites...Rebuilding the World", the technical program brings to consulting engineers, engineering contractors, building and mechanical contractors, and end-users a practical first of its kind insight into how fiber reinforced plastics (FRP) are being used in corrosion-resistant equipment, infrastructure applications, construction, and new materials development. If you are looking for new ways to decrease costs, lighten the weight of your designs, and extend the life of your equipment, this technical program will give you the practical tools and references you need as well as case histories and how-to sessions. A tabletop exhibit will offer further opportunities to learn about products and services used in the application of FRP technology.

A sampling of the program includes:
-- "A Forecast for FRP in the Construction and Corrosion Markets"
-- "Advanced Composite Surfacing Material for Repair of Concrete Bridges"
-- "The Application of FRP in the Burgeoning Power Industry"
-- "A Glimpse of Queensland Australia's Use of FRP Composites in Infrastructure"
-- "New Approach to Infrastructure Applications, such As Power Poles and Seawalls"
-- "Durability of Isophthalic Polyester Composites Used In Civil Engineering Applications"
-- "Twelve Years of FRP In Waste Water Treatment/Odor Control at Hyperion Los Angeles"
-- "Overview of Non-Destructive Evaluation Techniques for Corrosion Resistant FRP"
-- "Update of RTP-1 For Design of FRP Process and Storage Vessels"
-- "Design, Manufacturing and Testing of a 150 Foot Long Composite Bridge Designed for Heavy Vehicular Traffic"
