Mechanical behavior of flax-lime concrete blocks made of waste flax shives and lime binder reinforced with jute fabric
Due to the increase in production of construction materials, the emission of carbon dioxide levels and the requirement for producing materials with a less environmental footprint is gaining more attention. This paper focuses ...
Structural Behavior of Sandwich Beams with Flax Fiber–Reinforced Polymer Faces and Cardboard Cores under Monotonic and Impact Loads
To meet the ever-increasing demand for more environmentally conscious building designs, it is important that sustainable building material options be available. Natural and recycled materials can be used in sandwich panels ...
Experiments and nonlinear analysis of the impact behaviour of sandwich panels constructed with flax fibre-reinforced polymer faces and foam cores
As the effects of climate change become more apparent, it is necessary that environmental impact is considered in every aspect of our society, including the design of new infrastructure. The use of natural materials for ...
Flexural and shear characteristics of bio-based sandwich beams made of hollow and foam-filled paper honeycomb cores and flax fiber composite skins
In this paper, bio-based sandwich panels made of fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) skins and two types of paper honeycomb core (namely, hollow and foam-filled) with three different thicknesses (namely, 6 mm, 12 mm, and 25 mm) ...
Experimental and Analytical Behaviour of Sandwich Composites with Glass Fiber-reinforced Polymer Facings and Layered Fiber Mat Cores
This paper presents the results of experimental and analytical studies on the behaviour of sandwich beams fabricated with layered cores and glass fiber-reinforced polymer (GFRP) composite facings. The GFRP facings were ...
Recycled gypsum powder from waste drywalls combined with fly ash for partial cement replacement in concrete
Recent developments towards sustainable infrastructure have motivated more environmentally conscious construction practices. The concrete industry is known to have a large carbon footprint, which can be decreased by reducing ...
