    • Modelling the hygro-mechanical creep behaviour of FRP reinforced timber elements 

      O'Ceallaigh, Conan; Sikora, Karol; McPolin, Daniel; Harte, Annette M. (Elsevier, 2020-06-20)
      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 ...
    • Numerical study of FRP reinforced timber members subjected to variable climates 

      O'Ceallaigh, Conan; Harte, Annette M. (SHATiS International Conference on Structural Health Assessment of Timber Structures, 2019-09-25)
      The use of FRP reinforcement, even in small percentages, has been shown to improve the short-term flexural behaviour of timber members. This technology has been successfully used in new construction and in the repair and ...
