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 ...
Climate change impacts on the temperature and magnitude of groundwater discharge from shallow, unconfined aquifers

Strengthening Short Concrete Columns Using Longitudinally Bonded CFRP Laminates
This paper investigates the behavior of short concrete columns strengthened with externally bonded longitudinal carbon fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP) laminates combined with transverse basalt fiber-reinforced polymer ...
Experimental and Analytical Behavior of Sandwich Composite Beams: Comparison of Natural and Synthetic Materials
In this study, the flexural behavior of sandwich composite beams made of fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) skins and light-weight cores are studied. The focus is on the comparison of natural and synthetic fiber and core ...
Compressive Behaviour of Concrete Cylinders Reinforced with Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer Bars
(Canadian Society for Civil Engineering:, 2017-05-31)
Current design standards ignore any contribution of glass fiber reinforced polymer (GFRP) bars in concrete in a state of compression. This paper challenged this convention by testing 30 cylinders of 36 MPa concrete to ...
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 ...
