Durability behaviour of basalt fibre reinforced polymer (BFRP) rods in low grade timber
Optional Fields
bonded-in rods timber BFRP durability pressure soaking
This work investigates the durability performance of BFRP rods bonded-in to low-grade timber. Nine specimens were aged by pressure soaking and their pull-out capacities were compared to nine specimens tested at ambient temperature. It was found that pull-out capacity was reduced by 22% after aging, with failure arising from an average of one-third delamination along the bar occurring in the majority of specimens.
