Compressive Stress Strain Relationship of Wood Confined with Fiber Composite Sheets
This paper presents the results of an experimental study on the compressive stress-strain relationship of wood confined with fiber composite sheets. Wood cylinders confined with carbon fiber composite sheets along full length were tested by compression load. The tests considered up to three layers of fiber sheets. The results will be used to verify a numerical analysis model, which will be further used to conduct a parametric study of the influential factors. The generated knowledge can be used as reference for strengthening designs of historical timber structures using fiber reinforcing products.
