A brief overview of some of the more noteworthy PFRP structures is presented. It is noted that, at the present stage of development, bolted connections are used extensively in fabricating structural frames from PFRP sections. Tests on bolted connections between PFRP sections, i.e., axially loaded and moment connections, and guidance for their design are reviewed. Some areas where further research and guidance are needed are mentioned and the paper is concluded with a few remarks on possible future developments.
