The Effect of the Winding Materials on the Compression and Bending Properties of GFRP Bars


Article Preview

Several kinds of Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer (GFRP) bars with different winding materials were manufactured through modifying the production process. Based on the experiments, compression and bending properties were tested. Through the observation of experiment phenomenon and the analysis of test date, the influence and mechanism from different winding materials are discussed. The test results that winding materials affect the compressive strength and bending strength of GFRP bars to a certain extent.
