Furthermore, CMT has also been applied to manufacture composite-composite joints with a through-the-thickness metallic reinforcement in AISI 304, 316 L, and TI-6Al-4 V [85,112,113] as well as being introduced as a new technology for the reinforcement of fiber-metal laminates of GFRP
(epoxy matrix) and stainless steel AISI 430 .
The researchers developed a composite material that uses a matrix of GFRP
and a layer of carbon nanotube-based sensors to form a sandwich of materials.
absorbs ultrasound waves more quickly and has a higher value of attenuation comparing to steel.
(2013) reported that the thickness and depth of the delamination in the GFRP
laminates are determined.

is stacked by a fibreglass mono-layer plate, which is bound by thermosetting epoxy resin among each layer; the volume fraction of the fibre is maintained at 60% and its mechanical properties are listed in Table 3.
Pultron is currently working on the largest 3D printed building in the world, located in Dubai, and is deploying a number of different technologies on the project, including its GFRP
material was provided by the Slovak company Armastek.

PBO fabric, CFRP fabric, and GFRP
fabric were used as reinforcing materials in most studies regarding the FRCM composites [17, 18].
Using a GFRP
(glass fibre reinforced polymer) bar as a soil nail takes full advantage of its high tensile strength and avoids the disadvantages that come from its low shear modulus as a brittle material .
In the present work, however, the glass fibre-reinforced plastic (GFRP
) composite laminates under the fatigue loading conditions are examined.
