Abstract:Abstractome factors, such as environmental actions and load increases, can cause a necessity to restore a structural element. An efficient method typically used is to reinforce the structure with a high mechanical property´s material. In this study, a numerical approach of glued laminated timber beams reinforced with the following synthetic fibers: Vectran ® , carbon and glass fibers was developed.Vectran ® fibers have high performance and are employed in various areas, but not yet as a structural reinforcemen… Show more
