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.

Assessment of the probability of hydrogen cylinders destruction

Basalt fiber cylinders of hydrogen

The probability density and distribution function of time before the destruction of hydrogen cylinders of three types: made of steel, basalt fiber and fiberglass have been obtained. It is shown that the probability of destruction of the basalt fiber cylinders is less than cylinders made of steel and fiberglass in the range from 0 to 25 minutes.

Concrete Cylinders Confined with Basalt Fibre Reinforced Polymer

Concrete columns have an important function in many structures and can be vulnerable to exceptional loads. In older structures, columns often have a lack of transverse reinforcement, which is unable to provide sufficient confinement to the concrete core or to prevent buckling of the longitudinal reinforcement which causes premature strength degradation of the column.
