Durability of Flax FRPs Exposed to Accelerated Environmental Conditions
(CDCC 2017, 2017-07-19)
It is well known that synthetic fiber reinforcements, such as glass fibers, elevate the mechanical properties of polymer materials. Considering the synthetic material’s renewability challenges, natural fibers, such as flax ...
Effect of Fiber Orientation on Nonlinear Behavior of CFRP Composites
(Sage Publications, 2009-09)
Fiber orientation is one of the important parameters that affect strength and ductility of FRP-confined concrete columns. A number of studies have been conducted on various fiber orientations and wrap thicknesses, but have ...
Lateral Behaviour of Concrete-Filled FRP Tube Piles
Applications of fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) composite piles are rapidly gaining traction in Canada and around the world. FRP piles offer several advantages compared to traditional piles, the most important of which is ...
Experimental Study of Rectangular RC Columns Strengthened with CFRP Composites under Eccentric Loading
(American Society of Civil Engineers, 2010-01-28)
This paper presents the results of experimental studies on reinforced concrete columns strengthened with CFRP composites under combination of axial load and bending moment. A total of seven large-scale specimens with ...
Durability of Concrete Beams with Bonded FRP Composites made of Flax and Glass Fibers
Synthetic fibers, such as glass fibers, in the form of fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites have been extensively used for the repair and strengthening of existing concrete structures in the past three decades. As ...
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 ...
