Article Preview

In order to select the optimal reinforcing material to reinforce structural lumber for timberwork, the properties and mechanics of experimental samples made by galvanized steel wire mesh and GFRP reinforced wood from Chinese plantation were analyzed. The experiment results showed that two kinds of reinforcing materials could reinforce lumber, and galvanized steel wire mesh had better mechanics than fiberglass mesh. Furthermore, the glued structural lumber had enough bonding strength which was fit to make structural composite lumber for timber bridge.
