MECHANICAL PROPERTIES AND DURABILITY OF FRP-TIMBER COMPOSITE STRUCTURES

The use of glass fibre reinforced polymer (GFRP) has been increasing due to its considerable advantages such as high strength-to-weight ratio, resistance to corrosion, ease of installation and the relatively low cost. In comparison, wood is vulnerable to biological deterioration and harsh environmental conditions over time. It appears that a proper combination of GFRP and timber may take advantage of their individual merits and provide satisfactory mechanical performance and durability for the resulting FRP/timber composite structure. This PhD research studies the performances of GFRP timber composite structures including GFRP-confined timber structure and GFRP timber sandwich structure.
