Bending test of basalt and glass fibre reinforced glulam beams

Glued laminated timber beams are strengthened in the tension zone with FRP – textile reinforcement. Both Glass fibers (GFRP) and basalt fibers (BFRP) are used.

Glued laminated timber is a type of structural timber product composed of several layers of dimensioned timber bonded together with durable, moisture-resistant adhesives.

By laminating several smaller pieces of timber, a single large, strong, structural member is manufactured from smaller pieces. These structural members are used as vertical columns or horizontal beams, as well as curved, arched shapes.

The study was conducted by researchers of the School of Science and Engineering at Reykjavik University.

Factors affecting the properties of composites made by 4D printing

3D printing is the process where layers of materials are deposited to make structures of complex geometries. 4D printing is a process that combines 3D printing with the application of some activating agent in order to change the shape of the manufactured part after the process, e.g. the flat structure will change its shape to take up the desired complicated shape such as “curved” or “S” shaped.
