Manufacturing and mechanical characterization of Basalt Fibre Reinforced Bio-polymer composites

Manufacturing and mechanical characterization of Basalt Fibre Reinforced Bio-polymer composites

Nowadays, there is a growing interest for the use and development of materials synthesized from renewable sources in the polymer composites manufacturing industry; this applies for both matrix and reinforcement components. In the present investigation, a basalt fibre reinforced (BFR) bio-based epoxy system together with a cork core is proposed for its use in composite sandwich structures.

Experimental Investigation on the Behaviour of Flexural Strengthening of Beam Using Basalt Fiber

Experimental Investigation on the Behaviour of Flexural Strengthening of Beam Using Basalt Fiber

Worldwide, a great deal of research is currently being conducted concerning the use of fiber reinforced plastic wraps, laminates and sheets in the repair and strengthening of reinforced concrete members. Basalt fiber reinforced polymer (BFRP) application is very effective ways to repair and strengthen structures that have become structurally weak over their life of the span.
