Improved Design-Oriented Confinement Models for FRP-Wrapped Concrete Cylinders based on Statistical Analyses
This paper introduces improved design-oriented confinement models for cylindrical concrete members wrapped with fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composites based on a rigorous statistical evaluation of a large database. As ...
Strengthening Slender Reinforced Concrete Columns Using High-Modulus Bonded Longitudinal Reinforcement for Buckling Control
(American Society of Civil Engineers, 2015-04)
This paper introduces a model for strengthening slender reinforced concrete columns. The proposed technique aims at controlling second-order lateral deflections using longitudinal high-modulus bonded reinforcement, thereby ...
Tensile Properties of Flax FRP Composites
(6th Asia-Pacific Conference on FRP in Structures, 2017-07-19)
In this study, the effects of the polymer matrix properties and shape of test specimens on mechanical properties of flax fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites are examined. A total of 30 flax FRP coupons were fabricated ...
Closed-Form Model and Parametric Study on Connection of Concrete-Filled FRP Tubes to Concrete Footings by Direct Embedment
(American Society of Civil Engineers, 2010-10-30)
Concrete-filled fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) tubes (CFFTs) have been introduced as a new system for piles, columns and poles. A simple moment connection based on direct embedment of the CFFT into concrete footings or ...
Structural Behaviour of Sandwich Panels Constructed of Foam Cores and Flax FRP Facings
(Canadian Society for Civil Engineering, 2017-05-31)
In this study, the flexural behaviour of sandwich panels constructed of flax fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) facings and closed cell polyisocyanurate foam cores was examined. A total of nine sandwich beam specimens (1200 ...
Bond-Slip Analytical Formulation toward Optimal Embedment of Concrete-Filled Circular FRP Tubes into Concrete Footings
(American Society of Civil Engineers, 2010-03-15)
This paper presents a robust analytical model for a moment connection of concrete-filled fiber reinforced-polymer (FRP) tubes (CFFTs) to concrete footings. The CFFT connection is based on a simple approach of direct embedment ...
Cumulative Impact Energy Absorption of Sandwich Panels with Foam Cores and Flax FRP Facings
In this paper, the cumulative energy absorption of sandwich panels constructed of foam cores and flax fiber-reinforced bio-based polymer (FFRP) faces is studied. Nine sandwich panels were constructed and tested under varying ...
Impact Behaviour of Sandwich Panels Made of Flax Fiber-Reinforced Bio-Based Polymer Face Sheets and Foam Cores
