Distributed Fibre Optic Strain Sensing to Monitor Deterioration in Reinforced Concrete
Structural health monitoring (SHM) is an increasingly useful tool for life cycle management of deteriorating infrastructure. Rayleigh backscatter distributed fibre optic strain sensing (FOS) is a promising measurement ...
The Effects of Bio Content and Type of Resin on FRP Wet Layup Tensile and Bond Strength to Concrete and Durability Under Freeze-Thaw Cycles
This study focused on replacing conventional unsustainable resins currently used in the fabrication of externally bonded Fibre Reinforced Polymers (FRP) with bio-based resins. The first two phases of this study explored ...
Pultruded GFRP sections as stay-in-place structural open formwork for concrete slabs and girders
Commercially available glass fiber-reinforced polymer (GFRP) off-the-shelf structural shapes have great potential as stay-in-place open structural forms for concrete structures, including bridge decks and girders. The ...
