Effect of Basalt Fibers on The Flexural Behavior of Beams Reinforced With BFRP Bars
Over the last few decades, construction materials have gone through many developments aimed at improving their structural and operational properties. The implementation of fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) bars as a replacement ...
Flexural Performance of Concrete Beams Reinforced with Basalt Fiber Reinforced Polymers (BFRP) Bars
This research studies the flexural behavior of concrete beams that are reinforced longitudinally with the newly discovered Basalt Fiber Reinforced Polymers (BFRP) bars. The aim is to examine the suitability of using BFRP ...
Effect of Flexural NSM-FRP Bars on the Shear Strength of Reinforced Concrete Beams
Strengthening of reinforced concrete (RC) members in flexure and shear, using fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) laminates and near surface mounted (NSM) bars has been developed over the last few decades. Conventionally, FRP ...
Experimental Investigation of FRP-Reinforced Concrete Columns Under Concentric and Eccentric Loading
The problem of corrosion of steel in reinforced concrete (RC) structures has urged the need for alternative reinforcement materials. One possible alternative is fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) bars, which are non-corrosive, ...
