Abstract null null This paper presents an experimental study on the null compressive behavior null null null of ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC) confined with fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites. A total of 18 cylindrical specimens were prepared from UHPC containing 2.5% of micro null steel fibers null by volume, among which 6 were unconfined and 12 were confined with carbon FRP (CFRP). They were tested to investigate the experimental compressive behavior of unconfined or CFRP-confin...

Abstract null null Fabric reinforced cementitious mortar (FRCM) materials have started to be employed during the last years with the aim of overcoming the drawbacks related to the use of fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) composites, proving to be potentially suitable for strengthening masonry structures. Moreover, the will to develop materials able to guarantee a certain degree of sustainability without renouncing to adequate mechanical properties has drawn the attention to the use of basalt fibres...

Abstract null null This paper presents a breakage model of particulate solids under impact loading based on a mechanical approach. Existing breakage models are assessed using the experimental data from single particle impact tests, indicating a more general breakage model is required. Indentation fracture mechanics is used to account for surface damage under dynamic loading. The effect of impact angle is considered in the model, which rationalizes the contributions of both the normal and tangent...

Abstract null null Extensive experimental and numerical studies have been conducted to understand the bond behaviour of FRP-concrete interfaces with the assumption of homogenous materials. This study is aimed at a better understanding of the effects of concrete heterogeneity on the FRP-concrete bond behaviour, by a combination of experiments and mesoscale numerical modelling. FRP-concrete and FRP-mortar bonded joints were tested using a four-point bending setup. The crack initiation and propagat...

Abstract Fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) anchors have been shown to be effective for delaying or even preventing premature FRP debonding failures in concrete and masonry structures strengthened with externally bonded FRP. A number of researchers have conducted extensive research on their anchorage behaviour in concrete, but little research is concerned with the behaviour of FRP anchors embedded in masonry. An important difference between a brick unit and common concrete specimens is that the form...

Abstract Composites made with inorganic matrix, namely fabric reinforced cementitious mortar (FRCM) composites are becoming widespread as strengthening materials for existing masonry structures. These composites are made of a dry grid of fibres embedded in an inorganic matrix. FRCMs can be considered a valid alternative to traditional organic composites such as fibre reinforced polymers (FRPs) because of their better compatibility with the masonry support. This work presents an experimental stud...

A fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP)-confined concrete core that provides high strength and ductility under axial compression can act as strength enhancement in a hybrid column. In the present study, ordinary concrete was replaced with ultra-high-performance concrete (UHPC) to form an FRP-confined UHPC core (FCUC). The FCUC was embedded in square concrete-filled steel tube (CFST) columns to form a high-performance hybrid column (SCF-UHPC column for short). The axial compressive behavior of the SCF-U...

Fibre-reinforced cementitious matrix (FRCM) composites have been effectively used during the last ten years for the strengthening of existing concrete and masonry structures. These composite materials are made of medium- and high-strength fibre meshes embedded in inorganic matrices. Synthetic fibres are the ones that are currently the most used; however, natural fibres, such as basalt fibres, have recently been receiving growing attention. This work presents an extensive experimental study on th...

Abstract This paper presents the results of an experimental and analytical study on the compressive behaviour of small clay brick masonry cylinders reinforced with a basalt fibre reinforced polymer (BFRP) composite. Fourteen cylinders, manufactured using two assembling schemes and confined using either one or two layers of BFRP grids, were tested under monotonic compression loading. Traditional strain measuring systems were integrated with digital image correlation (DIC) technique. The BFRP conf...
