An investigation of the viscoelastic creep behaviour of basalt fibre reinforced timber elements
An investigation was carried out to examine the effect of flexural reinforcement on the long-term behaviour of timber beams. Creep tests, utilising statistically matched groups, were performed under Service Class 1 conditions ...
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 ...
