Title: Thin Plates Prestressed with Textile Reinforcement
Author(s): H. W. Reinhardt, M. Kruger, and C. U. Grosse
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 355-372
Keywords: AR-glass, bending, carbon, concrete, prestressing, textile reinforcement
Abstract:Tests were carried out on thin plates either reinforced or prestressed with textiles. The textiles had a warp knitted structure with 10 mm mesh size. The two materials AR glass and carbon behaved completely different in the four-point bending experiments.. Pull-out tests with acoustic emissino measurements showed clearly that the different bond behaviour was the cause for such differences.
