The mechano-sorptive creep behaviour of basalt FRP reinforced timber elements in a variable climate
The use of Fibre Reinforced Polymer (FRP) reinforcement has been shown to improve the short-term flexural behaviour of timber elements. This is particularly important when reinforced elements are subjected to a variable ...
Modelling the hygro-mechanical creep behaviour of FRP reinforced timber elements
A fully coupled moisture-displacement finite element model has been developed to predict the viscoelastic, mechano-sorptive and swelling/shrinkage behaviour of FRP reinforced timber elements when stressed under long-term ...
