I convey my honest gratitude to NATO technology Committee for granting me the monetary award to arrange and direct the complicated study Workshop on "MULTILAYERED and FIBRE-REINFORCED COMPOSITES: difficulties AND customers" that was once held in Kiev, Ukraine, throughout the interval of June 2 - 6, 1997, in collaboration with Professor S. A. Firstov of the Frantsevich Institute for difficulties of fabrics technology, nationwide Academy of Sciences, Kiev, Ukraine. during this context I desire to show unique due to Dr. J. A. Raussell-Colom, NATO­ Programme Director for precedence quarter on excessive know-how, for his style efforts and non-stop information during organizing the Workshop. I have fun with in actual fact the potential of operating heavily with Professor Firstov and recognize with deep gratitude his extraordinary contribution in co-directing the Workshop. I desire to exhibit my precise because of Dr. N. Orlovskaya of the Frantsevich Institute, for her impressive contribution in the direction of either the association and behavior of the Workshop. I desire to show my honest due to Professor V. V. Skorohord, Deputy Director of the Frantsevich Institute, on behalf of an identical Institute, for webhosting the Workshop and alluring the members to l{iev. The very sort efforts of the contributors of the clinical Advisory Committee, the neighborhood Organizing Committee and the workers of the Frantsevich Institute in the direction of the association and behavior of the Workshop, are gratefully preferred. I exhibit my complete indebtedness to all researchers who participated within the Workshop.

They have almost no ductility and cost is considerably higher than steel. The major advantage of FRP tendons is their corrosion resistance and therefore longer life. However, when used as the pre-stressing element in pre-tensioned beams the tendons are in direct contact with the concrete. This raises a serious concern about the glass fiber FRP tendon's durability in the concrete's alkaline environment. Therefore a series of tests has recently been undertaken to study this problem. [1993], it has been observed that when epoxy resin is used as the matrix of the S2 glass fiber pre-stressing tendon, severe degradation of glass has occurred when the specimens were exposed to dry/wet cycles.

Thus, the evolutionary stages of development of a given field of science, or a given theory, when scientists work sharing the same paradigm (a basic theory, a law, a model), are separated by revolutionary stages of development when the old, refuted paradigm is replaced by a new paradigm which provides a better insight compauble with a new piece of empirical evidence. One must notice that the influence of the established paradigms is particularly strong in the traditional engineering curricula, including the traditional experimental mechanics, as presented in a number of engineering textbooks and research papers.
