The Effects of Elevated Temperatures on Fibre Reinforced Polymers for Strengthening Concrete Structures
The use of fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) composites for strengthening reinforced concrete structures has become increasingly popular in recent years. However, before FRPs can be implemented in interior building applications ...
Structural and Thermal Behaviour of Insulated FRP-Strengthened Reinforced Concrete Beams and Slabs in Fire
Despite the superior properties of Fibre Reinforced Polymer (FRP) materials, the use of FRPs in buildings is limited. A key cause of concern for their use in buildings arises from their poor performance in fire occurrences. ...
Fatigue Behavior of Concrete Bridge Decks Cast on GFRP Stay-in-Place Structural Forms and Static Performance of GFRP-Reinforced Deck Overhangs
The first part of the thesis addresses the fatigue performance of concrete bridge decks with GFRP stay-in-place structural forms replacing the bottom layer of rebar. The forms were either flat plate with T-up ribs joined ...
Flexural Behaviour of Fibre Reinforced Polymer Strengthened Reinforced Concrete Beams at Elevated Temperatures
Fibre reinforced polymers (FRPs) have gained considerable popularity as a building and repair material. In particular, FRPs have been an economical means of extending the life of structures. As time passes, an increased ...
