Joint publication on pavements, buildings, energy and marine infrastructure research by ESRs

This paper serves as a complement to the joint paper on TRUSS progress in bridge engineering already reported in SHMII-8. Here TRUSS ESRs and supervisors deal with TRUSS progress on infrastructure research other than bridges (i.e., braided FRP, concrete, nuclear racks, wind turbine towers, ships and ship unloaders and pavements). The title is 'Contributions [...]
