Experimental Research on the Bearing Capacity of Timber Columns Repaired and Strengthened by BFRPS
Using BFRPS to increase strength and durability of the structure has recently started to be used as a new technical mean. In this paper, eight BFRPS timber columns under axial compressive loads are tested, and damage characteristics and mechanical properties are studied based on the testing results. Compared with the components which are reinforced and not, the relationship between the effects of bearing factors and increasing degrees can be concluded, providing reference for the similar engineering problems.
