Abstract

The purpose of the main research is to develop a more linear shape structural member using
Carbon Fiber Reinforced Thermoplastic composite material. This paper will discuss the production stage begin
with the instrumentation and machinery used in manufacturing, material selection for manufacturing the threelayer basic structure, and some improvement especially in material strength such as the tensile strength. In the
process, fiber content and cavity ratio test, tensile strength test, alkali resistance test, temperature dependency
test, weather resistance test, etc. is performed. Products that satisfy the expected performance were applied to the
actual construction project. However, Carbon fiber composite materials are not included in designated building
materials in the Japanese building standard. Therefore, it is difficult to apply the carbon fiber composite material
in building construction in the present. An example case on a real project, carbon fiber composite materials used
in structural member into the earthquake (horizontal) force resistant members.
