Paper Title:
Effects of Bonded Splice Joints on the Flexural Response of Pultruded Fibre Reinforced Polymer Beams
  Abstract

Three Pultruded Fibre Reinforced Polymer (PFRP) 152 x 152 x 6.4mm Wide Flange (WF) beams were fabricated with a central two-plate splice joint. The 6.4mm thick PFRP splice plates were 210, 410 and 610mm long. Each beam was tested in symmetric four-point bending about its major and minor-axis and deflections, rotations and surface strains were recorded. Beam transverse stiffnesses, support rotations and splice rotational stiffnesses were quantified and compared with theoretical predictions. Predicted deflections were 3.5% to 18.5% larger and support rotations were 10% smaller to 14.2% larger than the experimental values. Splice end rotations were generally poorly predicted.
