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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
