Paper Title:
Experimental Study on Bending Behavior of Timber Beams Reinforced with CFRP/AFRP Hybrid FRP Sheets
  Abstract

Based on the experiment of timber rectangle beams made of pine and fir reinforced with CFRP/AFRP hybrid FRP (HFRP) sheets. The failure modes and bending bearing capacity and load-deflection curves and strain distribution at mid-span section were analyzed. The results showed that: Comparing with the specimens without being reinforced by HFRP, there is certain improvement in bending bearing capacity and stiffness of the specimens reinforced with HFRP respectively. Bending bearing capacity of the pine specimens improve 18.1%~62.0% and bending bearing capacity of the fir specimens improve 7.7%~29.7%. Stiffness of the pine specimens improve 13%~21%, and stiffness of the fir specimens improve 6%~10%. Based on the experimental data, the computing formulas of bending bearing capacity of timber rectangle beams made of pine and fir reinforced with HFRP were presented.
