How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
In this work, the bond behaviour between concrete and glass fibre reinforced polymer (GFRP) bars is investigated with distributed fibre optical sensors (DFOSs). With the feature of measuring strain along the bar continuously of DFOS, the strain distributions along GFRP bars in the concrete have been fully measured in the first time. Besides, numeri...
Nowadays, the concept of energy saving is achieving more attention in building construction. As a critical element of a building, the balcony creates a discontinuity in envelope insulation and causes massive heat losses. To solve this issue, the adoption of fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) bars with the feature of low thermal conductivity in balcony...
