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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
