Experimental Study of FRP Rubber Bearing

Abstract:

Article Preview

FRP (fiber reinforce polymer) rubber bearing is a novel isolator improved from traditional laminated rubber bearing. Several specimens were manufactured to study the mechanic properties of FRP rubber bearing. Vertical experiments are conducted to study the compression capacity and compression modulus of the bearing and horizontal experiments are conducted to study the shear modulus and damping property of the bearing. Hysteretic curve and damping ratio of each specimen are derived from the experiments. The results show that the performance of FRP rubber bearing matches that of multiplayer rubber bearing but have good damping capacity.
