FRP Composite Tests Pull-Off Tests Before 2009, the standard used as guidance for pull-off tests was ASTM(2009b). This standard was primarily created as a test method for the pull-off strength of coatings. However, because of similarities in specimen preparation and testing procedures, the standard was used by previous studies as [...]
Introduction to Strengthening with FRP It is well known that concrete is a building material with a high compressive strength and a poor tensile strength. A beam without any form of reinforcement will crack and fail when subjected to a relatively small load. The failure occurs suddenly in most cases [...]
Introduction to Carbon Fiber Carbon fiber composites are lightweight, high strength structures created by embedding carbon fiber into a supporting material, known as a matrix. By combining materials, manufacturers can produce parts with both the strength and stiffness of the carbon fiber and the durability and versatility of the matrix [...]
