Advanced Polymer Composites for Structural Applications in by L C Hollaway

By L C Hollaway

Over the last 3 many years complex polymer composites have emerged as an enticing building fabric for brand spanking new buildings and the strengthening/rehabilitation of present structures and bridges. The strategies linked to the expertise, research and layout of polymer composites in development are regularly being researched and the development made with this interesting fabric will proceed at an ever- expanding fee to satisfy the calls for of the development undefined. This quantity of complaints is from the second one ACIC 2004 overseas convention, which concerned about the appliance and additional exploitation of complex composites in development. The convention allowed practicing engineers, asset managers, researchers and consultant of regulatory our bodies to advertise the energetic alternate of clinical and technical details at the quickly altering scene of complicated composites in building. This quantity specializes in the presentation of recent suggestions, concepts and case stories, in an effort to bring about higher exploitation of complicated polymer composites and FRP fabrics for civil engineering infrastructure, rehabilitation and renewal.

  • Presents new techniques, strategies and case studies

Instrumentation and Network The response of the bridge is characterized through the use of 63 accelerometers, 20 strain gauges, 4 linear potentiometers, 1 temperature sensor, and a pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) camera. The accelerometers are Model 3140 single axis accelerometers from ICSensors, Inc. The Model 3140 is a high-performance signal conditioned accelerometer with a dynamic range of +l- 2g.

Beyond studies related to moisture uptake, a minimum of 4 specimens from each exposure condition and time period were tested in tension (in the fiber direction) following ASTM D3039 procedures. Tests were conducted immediately after removing samples from exposure conditions, and after the period of reconditioning (to assess property regain).
