The objective of this Special Issue is to present recent advances and emerging cross-disciplinary in the field of thin-walled composite profiles made of Fiber Reinforced Polymers (FRP), as well as the use of FRP components in structural engineering in general. In this Editorial, a brief summary is provided for all the published papers, in order to emphasize the wide range of possible applications of FRP composites in buildings and structural systems.
