Two categories of GFRP specimens, in nominal diameters of 11.2 mm and 15.6 mm respectively, made of E-glass fibers and a vinylester resin were immersed in alkaline solution, saline solution and tap water solution at room temperature. The mechanical and durability properties of tested GFRP bar specimens were determined through direct tensile test and short-beam shear test after exposure to aggressive solutions for different days. The obtained results indicated that for all tested GFRP ba…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
