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