Textile and civil engineers and other researchers, most of them from the University of Minho in Portugal, explore the use of textiles and other fibrous material in civil engineering contexts. They cover types of fibrous textiles and structures, fibrous materials as a concrete reinforcement material, and composites based on fibrous materials. Among their topics are physical and mechanical properties of natural and man-made fibers, textiles structures, material properties and structural applications of steel fiber reinforced concrete, the role of fiber reinforcement in mitigating shrinkage cracks in concrete, fibrous materials reinforced composites for structural health monitoring, and acoustic behavior of fibrous materials.
