Mechanical Property of FRP Bar and Design Method of Hybrid FRP Bar
The paper described the detailed design and production method of the FRP bar and the anchorage device, and it also introduced the test method of mechanical properties on the tensile strength, elastic modulus and the rate of elongation of the FRP bar. Moreover, it conducted statistical analysis into test results and put forward the mechanical property index for structural design of the FRP bar concrete. Test results indicated that stress-strain relation of the FRP bar presented linear variation. FRP bar is superior to steel bar concerning high tensile strength-quality ratio and high durability, the elastic modulus and the rate of elongation of the FRP bar are also less than those of the steel bar, it is practicable to use FRP bar as a new type of tensile material in concrete structures. And then, it put forward design ideas of the hybrid FRP bar by a series of analysis on the hybrid effect and the ductility of the hybrid FRP bar.
