Exploitation of FRP Fabric Reinforcement

Exploitation of FRP Fabric Reinforcement
Exploitation of FRP Fabric Reinforcement
This paper presents findings from a combined experimental and numerical investigation into novel use of Carbon Fibre Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) fabric as reinforcement in concrete beams. The paper presents the development of a MATLAB-based computer code that incorporates the complex mechanical and geometric behaviour of 3D CFRP geometries, effects of concrete cracking, concrete–CFRP bond, equilibrium, compatibility and boundary conditions for analysing CFRP fabric reinforced concrete beams. The model predictions were compared against experimental results, including strain data and load-deflection relationships.

Abstract

This paper presents findings from a combined experimental and numerical investigation into novel use of Carbon Fibre Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) fabric as reinforcement in concrete beams. The paper presents the development of a MATLAB-based computer code that incorporates the complex mechanical and geometric behaviour of 3D CFRP geometries, effects of concrete cracking, concrete–CFRP bond, equilibrium, compatibility and boundary conditions for analysing CFRP fabric reinforced concrete beams. The model predictions were compared against experimental results, including strain data and load-deflection relationships.
