Flexural Behavior of Sandwich Panels made of FRP Composites: Synthetic and Natural Fibers
Sandwich panels made of fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) skins and light-weight core materials have the potential to be effectively used in several structural applications such as cladding, decking, and roofing panels. The ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
