Probabilistic-based design factor for the elastic modulus of a pultruded composite material reinforced with a 3D braided preform
This work describes research aimed to probabilistically assess the mechanical properties of a pultruded fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) reinforced with a 3D braid and roving. In addition, reliability-based reduction factors ...
Strength of mortar mixtures with added polymeric fibers extracted from recycled tires
The problem of tire waste in Puerto Rico has become an increasing concern. The Island has been accumulating tires for years. These tires occupy unnecessary space and hold water that can be home for mosquitoes which represent ...
Comportamiento mecánico de tubos de material compuesto rellenos de hormigón bajo carga axial en compresión
Los tubos de polímero fibro-reforzado (FRP) rellenos de hormigón constituyen una alternativa eficiente para la construcción de elementos de soporte estructural. Para ser utilizados con un nivel adecuado de confianza, estos ...
Resistencia a fatiga en materiales compuestos considerando degradación higrotérmica
Fiber-reinforced polymer composites (FRP) constitute an attractive alternative in the construction industry to conventional materials such as steel and concrete. However, understanding of the influence of environmental ...
Long term behavior of hygrothermaly conditioned concrete-filled fiber-reinforced polymetric tubes subjected to axial loads
This study evaluated the behavior of concrete filled FRP tubes (CFFT) subjected to moisture absorption condition. Accelerated aging by means of hygrothermal process was conducted to predict long-term mechanical behavior ...
