Experimental study on flexural behaviors of engineered cementitious composite beams reinforced with FRP bars

engineered cementitious composite beams reinforced with FRP bars

The use of FRP reinforcement has attracted great attention in concrete structures due to its high tensile strength, good fatigue performance, and especially inherent anti-corrosion ability. Engineered cementitious composite (ECC) is a class of high performance cementitious composites with pseudo strain-hardening and multiple cracking properties. Substitution of concrete with ECC can avoid the cracking and durability problems from weakness of ...

Engineering Composite Materials

Engineering Composite Materials

The book by Bryan Harris provides readers with a basic understanding of the material engineering science as well as the engineering applications of composite materials. It explains how composite materials, with their advantages of high strength with stiffness, together with low weight and other desirable properties are formed and discusses the nature of the different types of reinforcement and matrix – ...

Continuous Basalt Fiber as reinforcement material in polyester resin

Continuous Basalt Fiber as reinforcement material in polyester resin

The industry is always striving to find new and better materials to manufacture new or improved products. Within this context, energy conservation, corrosion, sustainability and other environment all issues are important factors in product development. Basalt fibers are a natural material, produced from igneous rock which can provide high strength relative to weight.
