Effects of Surface and Fiber Types on Mechanical Properties of Fiber Reinforced Polymer Bars
In this study, effects of surface form (sand coated and helical ribbed surface) and fiber types (glass, carbon, aramid and basalt) on tensile strength and elastic modulus of fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) bars were investigated. The results showed that FRP bars with helically wrapped surfaces have higher tensile strength and elastic modulus than those of FRP bars with sand coated surface.
