Experimental Study on the Compression Performance of GFRP Bars under Different Corrosion Environment
Glass fiber reinforced polymer (GFRP) bars were exposed to the solutions of different alkaline and chloride salt concentrations in order to examine the influence of different corrosion environment on the compression performance of GFRP bars. The results showed that the stress strain curves of the GFRP bars could be expressed as lines approximately. The compressive strength and elastic modulus gradually decreased with increasing of the corrosion time, and the decrease was more obvious in alkaline corrosion environment.
