    • An investigation of the viscoelastic creep behaviour of basalt fibre reinforced timber elements 

      Conan O'Ceallaigh, Conan; Sikora, Karol; McPolin, Daniel; Harte, Annette M. (Elsevier, 2018-08-01)
      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 ...
    • Viscoelastic creep of FRP reinforced glulam 

      O’Ceallaigh, Conan; Sikora, Karol; McPolin, Daniel; Harte, Annette M. (NUI Galway, 2016-08-29)
      The reinforcement of timber using fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) rods or plates is widely accepted as an effective method of increasing the strength and stiffness of members, while at the same time reducing the variability ...
