In the context of lightweight structure design for the transportation and robotics industries, new types of composite structures are being developed, in the form of trusses made of fiber-reinforced polymer composite members of small diameter. The main objective of this work is to study adhesive joints, bonding pultruded composite tubes inside...

We present a new approach to estimate geometry parameters of glass fibers in glass fiber-reinforced polymers from simulated X-ray micro-computed tomography scans. Traditionally, these parameters are estimated using a multi-step procedure including image reconstruction, pre-processing, segmentation and analysis of features of interest. Each...

The simulation of long life behavior and environmental aging effects on composite materials are subjects of investigation for future aerospace applications (i.e. supersonic commercial aircrafts). Temperature variation in addition to matrix oxidation involves material degradation and loss of mechanical properties. Crack initiation and growth...

In the context of lightweight structure design for the transportation and robotics industries, new types of composite structures are being developed, in the form of trusses made of fiber-reinforced polymer composite members of small diameter (a few millimeters thick at most). Some concepts of wound trusses can be found in the literature, but...

This paper reviews the use of fiber-reinforced polymers (FRPs) in architectural and structural bridge design in the Netherlands. The challenges and opportunities of this relatively new material, both for the architect and the engineer, are discussed. An inventory of recent structural solutions in FRP is included, followed by a discussion on...

Composite grid-stiffened and lattice structures have been the focus of an increasing amount of research over the past decades, mainly because of their excellent structural performance. Most of the previous and current research focuses on analysis, manufacturing, and optimization of the base structure. Although more and more is becoming known...

Flink, P.J. (author)
Many old moveable bridges have exceeded their technical lifetime. Replacement of the foundations is expensive and often unnecessary if the new bridge superstructure is lighter than the old one. With stricter design guidelines being in effect nowadays, a conventional orthotropic steel deck design will end up being heavier. A lightweight fiber...

In this thesis a feasibility study is performed for the design of fibre reinforeed polymer (FRP-) slides to replace the steel slides in the Eastern Scheldt storm surge harrier. The advantage of using FRP-slides is the far better corrosion resistance then in case of using steel. For the design different variants of FRP-slides have been...

Gradeci, K. (author)
Fibre Reinforced Polymer bridge decks, thanks to their beneficial properties and various advantages over traditional materials, have great potential as a material used in bridge engineering. They exercise high specific strength and stiffness-to-weight-ratio, a property particularly interesting from the point of view of designers, as it provides...

Chlosta, M. (author)
Considering the recent increase in the use of fiber reinforced polymers in the civil engineering industry in general and in the bridge engineering industry in particular, as well as the recently more and more applied cylindrical truss bridge type, this research focuses on the question whether it is possible to combine fiber reinforced polymers...

This paper describes quay wall and bridge designs in different materials, which are compared with regard the the CO2-emission and the Life Cycle Analysis (LCA). For this study the requirements and boundary conditions from the Euromax Terminal quay wall, in the Port of Rotterdam, have been used. The preliminary designs of the quay wall (made...
