Response of reciprocally supported advanced FRP composite jointed frames - Part 1: Experimental study

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This paper discusses the recent investigation into the mechanical behaviour of reciprocally supported Fibre Reinforced Polymer (FRP) box sections when mutually connected under several boundary conditions. The study sort to experimentally determine the ultimate load of the assembly, stress and strain distribution on each member and failure mechanism. For the tests, FRP reciprocal frames units (RF) of 100 × 100 mm with a thickness of 6.35 mm was assembled with 10mm bolt connectors. A metal support rig was fabricated to provide the various boundary conditions. The observed failure modes were dominated by web buckling, bearing failure around the bolted areas and localised failure. The 100 × 100 mm RF unit had more strength, having the stiffness of 1.7 kN/m, ultimate load of 16.4 kN and global displacement of 16.71 mm under the support condition SP1 boundary conditions. This paper details the experimental procedure, results and observations.
